On Saturday, life handed us lemons, and we made lemonade...today, we made zest.
We left campus on Friday and headed to Boonville, NY (pronounces BOONEY- VILLE) to hopefully get some good skiing in. We got to the ski area Saturday and found that there was still a good amount of grass on the trails. We still skied for 2 hours in the morning and scoped out a course for Sunday’s time trial in the afternoon.
When we returned on Sunday morning ready to race, we discovered that the ski trails had turned to ice except for one trail. After an hour skiing on a 1.5K track, the team split to play a heated game of speed ball on skis (NO SHOES ALLOWED, BECCA!)
Needless to say, this weekend was an adventure--from our living arrangements at the Headwater Motor Inn, to the less than optimal ski conditions, and the ghostly dinner at the Gathering Place. No need to pucker up, this team knows how to turn even the most sour of situations into something sweet.
