Not much to do at MVYC during the winter except repair dock bumpers. Walking on the ice around the docks makes this much easier. The trade off is cold fingers. Can’t wait for “ice out” to hang out with our friends on A&B docks this spring.
12 inches of powder Friday morning made fantastic ice free skiing Saturday. Parking lots were packed but lift lines were amazingly short. Even with the new snow not all trails were open, forcing beginner thru expert skiers onto the same trails. We stayed a few hours and split for home (gotta love season passes). Kids skied all day and came home all smiles and ready for a beer.
Winter is here and there’s still apples on the trees. Snowshoes and warm clothes is all that’s needed to pick the frozen apples. Even cold and leafless, the orchard is beautiful.
