Last week I had a second opportunity to ski in the New Paltz area with an old friend. For this day, we chose the Mohonk golf course for our explorations and it was beautiful! The trails were nicely groomed and marked and we were nearly alone as we shussed through the woods. One of the first challenges we encountered was the hill below - yikes! It was a bit on the icy side and more than a tad scary looking from the top, so we elected to ski down the more subtle incline and climb up the severe hill. Which we did repeatedly - for fun. Really. I'm heading down there again in 2 weeks with another friend as part of an organized trip. Very excited to actually eat at the Mohonk Mountain house instead of just gaze wistfully at that beautiful Camelot-like building.
