Hi Everyone,

As Always, everything depends on the weather and ground conditions..

I will arrive to get my ticket at 6:00 pm and will be be wearing my BRIGHT ORANGE HUNTING HAT near the ticket counter or ski rack by the lodge at bottom of slope next to the check the ticket booth spot while bringing and putting on my ski things---> UNTILL 6:30 pm, then i am off to the top with or without you, but i am easy to spot while reaching the bottom of the slope with the Orange Hat on.

Too soon to know the weather, check back the day of the event for any changes...

------------

Mt Suthington is a small local mountain that is only 30 minutes from Hartford and OK for a simple evening excersize event during a work week.

This is a paddling group with a few events that will keep you a bit fit for paddling season start, we are not a ski group so the event is more social and some excersize.

The EVENING (6 PM TO 10 PM) ski event that is pretty local for most of us..

After 2.5 hours its usually enough of a challenge.

    I had a great time skiing at Southington. It is so convenient and relatively non-intimidating.
