X-Country Skiing at Fahnestock

A big storm around here means getting out to Fahnestock Winter Park as soon as they open for cross country skiing.  Mornings are the best times for it, for 2 reasons: it almost always breaks freezing by noon after a storm around here, and the New York City folks roam in around noon.  Today the snow would have lasted longer, but on our last stretch back to the lodge we passed a steady stream of folks that were complaining about the snow, or their skiis, or something else, and realized it was good that we were about to be done.  I’m not sure why so many folks from NYC have the inability to appreciate a beautiful snowy day, but apparently they do.

MyTracks provided me with a great map of the ski, so here it is to share and enjoy:
