Thanks to the generosity of State Representative Aaron Michlewitz and Billy Stoddard of the Police Athletic League, 82 members of the North End ski club were able to continue a tradition that goes back 21 years – their annual weekend spring ski trip to Killington Mountain in Vermont.
Meteorological speaking, it was a spring trip, but the 18 inches of powder that the mountain received during the week leading up to the outing guaranteed mid-winter conditions for the 23 families who almost completely filled the beautiful Chalet Killington, just one mile from the slopes. With all 155 trails open, there was a wide range of terrain for all levels of skier or rider, and the fact that all 22 lifts were operating all weekend assured very little wait time in line. Even the weather cooperated! After the storm blew out Friday night, two gorgeous days of sun and moderate temperatures made this one of the better trips in the long history of the ski club.
Club members, mark your calendars for March 20-22, 2020 when the 22nd edition of this tradition is scheduled!
