We set out early on a typical winter’s day in Northeast Vermont; cloudy and overcast, temperatures in the teens, and a fresh coat of snow making for a slow drive to Montgomery. Once at the ski center, we were immediately welcomed by Rolf Anderson, a former president of the GMC. We were all given a special discount rate of $5 (as opposed to $12) for the days use of their trails. This is the Hazen’s Notch policy for ALL GMC members, anytime, making it worth the long drive from the Champlain Valley.

The six of us enjoyed a long loop, setting out from the East Meadows Trail, across the road and up to the High Meadows Trail. We returned to the heated welcome center for lunch, after which a select few of us continued on for a post-lunch loop.

Participants – Michael Banks, Lee Ann Banks, Carol Hignite, Donna Leban, Patty Williams, and Linda Evans
