Bretton Woods XC is still kicking…

The family and I headed up to cross country ski Bretton Woods today.  I am feeling spring down here in the Valley, but up in the Notches, it is still winter.  Today’s Nordic Marathon attracted a huge number of skiers from all around New England and the country.  Reports were that the conditions were slower than last year, firm on the fields, soft in the woods.  After the race, we hit the Eisenhower area again to great success.  Dark Forest had complete coverage on the trails…off trail it was more than pole-length deep!

On the way down, we kept a lookout for the numerous ice climbers in the area hitting the nice looking ice on the sides of Rte 302 in the Notch.  Word has it that our good friend, Kevin Mahoney, was up on the ice somewhere there.  If you are interested in trying ice climbing, give Kevin from Mahoney Alpine Adventures a ring.  I would trust him to take my kids ice climbing…and if you know me…that says a lot.

Huge congratulations go out to the Kennett Girls Basketball and the Kennett Boys Hockey.  Two state championships in the last two days.  Amazing.  Great job, kids.

Enjoy the last days of winter and don’t forget to “spring ahead” tonight for daylight savings.  Check our RSN TV16 tomorrow for the live show – more Watch ‘n’ Win to be had!   Free tickets for spring skiing can’t be beat.  We will start to blow those out now that the days are numbered.  Become a friend of RSN on Facebook and you have even more ways to win.
