NENSA Craftsbury Thanksgiving Camp

by Spencer

Skiing, eating, sleeping–that’s how a few lucky kids burned off the thanksgiving meal. NENSA hosted the first annual Craftsbury thanksgiving ski camp this year. Because the Craftsbury ski center now has snowmaking, it was possible for them to hope to be on snow by Black Friday. While it was too warm for much man-made snow, we were blessed by a significant storm mid-week, which was enough to open the ski center. Athletes from all over New England converged on some of the only skiing in the area. Three Ford Sayre skiers (Caitlin, Spencer, George) joined (created) the NENSA camp for 3 days of training and a race. It was great to be back on snow! Even though snow became rather sparse by the last day, it was a blast for all. Training all day, without much else to think about was a very relaxing yet productive life style we all agreed we could live with. One of the snow free highlights involved a partially frozen lake and a sauna. All in all, it was a great way to kick off the winter.
