JAN 21 -- MONDAY EVENING Downhill Skiing @ Mt SOUTHINGTON

  • Jan 21, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Everyone,

As always, weather and road conditions will be a factor on cancelation or Lets GO.

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

If you are a Ski SNOB looking for Swiss Alps Challenges, please do not join us, no one is interested in hearing any of your complaints about simple Mt Southington and the typical Southern New England snow conditions.

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. Besides, i am an old fat geezer, so this is all i can handle for now.

I would like to do an EVENING (6 PM TO 10 PM) ski event that is pretty local for most of us..

LAST YEAR ON Obama DAY THERE WAS A DISCOUNT COUPON SO IT MADE THIS EVENT BETTER FOR ME AND ANYONE ELSE THAT CAME, since most kids have the day off, they ski in the day, the evening seemed to be very easy to get on the lifts, this year most likely will be the same.

More Information will be added soon IF NECESSARY.

As always, bad driving conditions cancels or postpones this event to another evening.
