In search of colder weather and more pow, the crew decamped from balmy Sunday River, Maine and cross-country skiied down I-81 to the mecca of extreme-weather skiing: Boone, North Carolina.
Sugar Mountain is a hotbed of ski innovation if you didn't know. From the cutting edge hood-inside-helmet look to the snowboarding-with-poles iconoclasts, Sugar is a special place. We had a great weekend of racing. Bryce up next!
Marilyn loved the weather at Sugar Mountain. 7 degrees at the base!

Special shoutout to first-year Ali for leading the women skiiers in her first USCSA race. Also shouts out to Scott for finally coming to race, and finishing all of his runs backwards. Furthermore, shoutout to anybody dumb enough to take his phone out of his pocket long enough to take a picture. You took one for the team.
Some more pictures:
Joe trying to put on his coat, but he can't because joints freeze at these temperatures.

Thank you for blowing snow at the lift.
