Graham’s notes on Sunday’s Ski February 15, 2009

Filed under: Ski Conditions,Skiing — Harold @ 8:59 pm

Wonderful skiing in Sackville today. As I made my way toward the pond I heard the clatter of approaching skiers and soon saw a haggard bunch resembling Shackleton’s men reaching Elephant Island, all sweat and happiness. They’d been to Memramcook.

Rob

Peter Manchester, Ross Thomas, and assorted other nimrods of the TOC. Saw many others on the trail on the way back to the Crooked Tree, which was in superb condition and red Swix, carefully corked smooth seemed to be the wax of the day, especially over an ironed-on binder. At my sarcopenic age I need all the physics and chemistry available. All these trails beginning near the reservoir gates as well as the newly manicured Beech Hill are worthy, in my view, of a single explanatory name. Something TOC and the town can promote and which will bring more people here to ski. Comments and name suggestions please. Might be fun at the pot luck. My suggestion Tantramar Winter Centre or Sackville Winter Centre.

    No, no. It was Amundsen what ‘ad the huskies. Scott had ponies and a petrol tractor. Sat in a tent penning farewell notes to his loved ones and sponsors. Just past Breau Creek.He’s evidently not coming to the potluck.

    Aye aye, Shakelton it was and we left Mr Scott himself in the Sulfur Spring at Breau Creek with his huskies.
