Dryland Skiing Fun for Families
Growing up in Vermont, the end of summer was always a bittersweet time. The air would get crisper, school would loom and then arrive with the thud of a heavy textbook, the leaves would bronze and redden, and the days of splashing in the river and eating dinner outside at an 8 o’clock dusk would come to an end. But then the anticipation would kick in: fall quickly becomes an interlude, whose only purpose was to bring about winter, snow days, and Nordic skiing. For kids, or at least for my kid self, dread turns to excitement on a dime. And this is a good thing: especially with the uncertainty and anxiety kids and parents are feeling as this second COVID-cramped school year starts, it can be critical to look forward to the endless fun and adventure that winter can bring.
