That Is Real Skiing

That Is Real Skiing

We skied; we smiled, then finally we took a run and I said, “That is real skiing.” Real skiing to me is great snow and great bump lines. The snow does not have to be knee deep and the lines don’t have to be tight or big. You see, I do love to ski, and I have fun most of the time when I am skiing, despite the actual conditions. But what I really love is skiing on interesting and challenging terrain with natural snow, good lines and maybe even some pucker brush poking through. And this year, I got that on my second day out.

    I also have started a new tradition–making time for that wonderful, warm, and hearty breakfast BEFORE going to the lodge. Here’s my tip of the day: If anyone is heading to Sunapee, be sure not to miss the breakfast at Bradford Depot. Lord, it’s so good and so inexpensive. I was with two others, and we couldn’t believe how big a great breakfast $3 bought. It’s on Route 114. We got there from Peterborough by getting off Route 202 North, exiting at 114 where the sign says “Henniker.” We turned left, and right past the sign for Bradford was the Bradford Depot. Just leave room for me!

    I think skiing in brush makes you happier than anything. It is the road less traveled. But then again, Pico is always a special treat.
