XC Ski at Elma Meadows on Feb 13, 2016

Feb. 13th, the coldest day this winter had 6 crazy people, a combination of ADK’ers and Buffalo Nordic members brave the sub-zero temps and XC Ski out at Elma Meadows.  Originally, the plan was Bryncliff, but even with the lake-effect snows of Friday, the 12th, there wasn’t good enough conditions to justify the drive and the fees for Byrncliff. We were the only ones on the trail but the employees lit the fireplace and opened the snack bar for us!  While not very fashionably dressed, the face mask and goggles really worked well! Hand warmers also came in handy.  Submitted by Mary Schraven
