BKL Program Starts Tuesday, Nov. 28th!

Tuesday:  We will meet inside the Walker Building at the Range to get started. Most likely we will be on foot (wear your sneakers) and we will do some dryland ski drills and play lots of games. Dress in layers and bring a full water bottle.

Thursday: Wear your sneakers again and bring shorter classic poles that you can run with (the poles you used last year or the year before are probably about right). We’ll do some bounding and running with poles and play more games! Parents will attend the parent meeting which starts at 4:45 and we will all go until 5:30 on this day.

3-day Program Skiers:  Tentative Plan:  Saturday at Craftsbury, 10-11:30 on snow. Skate technique.

Hunger Mt. Hike

Ten adventurous BKL kids plus five parents took advantage of a day off from school to hike Mt. Hunger on Friday. What a gorgeous day it was! The group got quite strung out on the uphill climb due to a variety of hiking paces but everyone made it to the top where the views were awesome in all directions. It was so clear that we could see the White Mountains to the east and the Adirondacks to the west.  A fierce wind was blowing down the ridgeline so we had to find a sheltered spot to eat our lunch. Carly’s mom, Carolyn, treated us all to gingerbread and whipped cream that she packed up the mountain in honor of her birthday. Happy Birthday Carolyn and great work hiking to all the kids and parents!

Next week’s hike is on Sunday, Oct. 29. We’ll be hiking Mt. Mansfield!
