Moonlight Ski:
It was a beautiful night for a cruise on the Rec Path this Tuesday.  The weather was warm (for a change) and the snow was great, helped out by a fresh inch over day and a late afternoon pass by Stowe Nordic’s groomer.  Sushi Yoshi provided a seemingly endless array of free appetizers (sushi, teriyaki chicken, potstickers, crab rangoon and more)….thank you to all the staff at Yoshi!.
Next moonlight ski is on Tuesday February 6th at 6pm and will be sponsored by Piecasso.  Check the Events column on our website home page (stowenordic.org) for details when we get closer to the date.
