Annual Skiing Day

coming down the hill at Holimont

Today was our annual skiing/snowboarding day where many of the Young Naturalist, their parents and I got together for a fun day over at the Holimont Ski Resort in Ellicottville, NY. It was such a wonderful day and had some good laughs. After skiing/snowboarding we followed the tradition of eating pizza over at the Depot Restaurant. Hmm Pizza!

Temperatures quickly dropped and because it was ”SO COLD”, I failed to pull the camcorder out this year . . . . so here is the same 2:35 min video from last years adventure (it was a good one). Did I mention how fun this adventure was today?

  3. Looks like perfect skiing weather. It was cold here, but the winds were light and the sun was strong. Winter at its best!

  11. I’ve never went skiing before but I was thinking about doing cross-country skiing because it seems like a good way to sneak up on wildlife in the woods.
