Women’s X-Country Ski Weekend in Vermont on St. Patrick’s Day A Success Without Snow

10 Apr
When life gives you lemons make lemonade!   Well, we didn’t really get lemons.  We got….SPRING!   All the cross country skiing places within a 40 mile radius of our lodge had closed their doors for the season.   What were 14 eager women to do?   Would their day be foiled by some silly crocuses?   Never.   They decided to go hiking instead.   With some direction from the Green Mountain Club they ventured onto the Long Trail behind McGrath’s Irish Pub in Killington.   They hiked on ice and snow, through mud and streams, up steep inclines and down slippery rocks in search of the Appalacian Trail.    Whether they actually found it is subject to question.   What they did find, however, was great company: each other!   After quite a hike (how long we really don’t know) they rested their weary bones on Pico’s doorstep.   Why not?   There was a band playing and a bar on the deck.   And if that’s not a full enough day they later met up for lovely dinner at the Three Tomatos Trattoria in Rutland.   Life is good especially in the company of such wonderful, strong, and adventurous women.   If there is one thing we can all agree on, its a quote by Helen Hayes: Rest and you rust.
