What is your favorite trail at the Dartmouth Skiway?
Last week, while riding the Winslow chair, I tried to pick my favorite Skiway trail. I skied five days last week, so I got plenty of chances to choose! Here’s my short list:
Worden’s Schuss - one of my top two Skiway “zoomers”, where i can get up some truly exhilarating speed!
Herman’s Highway, which is like skiing on a pretty country road.
Thomas, where I can make lots of quick turns along the steeps and edges. This is my other "zoomer"!
Papoose, where I always stop to gaze in wonder at the BIG rock.
About two weeks ago, I had the most amazing powder run on M.D. It was covered in light, fluffy powder from top to bottom…being a New England skier I am better on the hard pack, but that day I truly got it (with a lot of patient coaching from Women’s Ski Clinic instructor Gabi). Now I know why hooting and hollering with delight goes with skiing the POW, and I did some of my own! M.D. , with its natural snow cover plus fun twists and turns, is definitely on my list -- even when it is not a powder day.
Nope - I am not going to pick a favorite. But you can. Which are your favorite trails at the Skiway? Why? Take a moment and let me know.
