Opinion: Nordic skiing has been at its best

Many thanks for Matt Dickerson’s most recent column on Nordic skiing. It was a good reminder, as the close of winter draws into at least hazy view, of just how hard the crew at Rikert worked all year.
Skiing began in mid-November, but for most of the first half of the season it was an almost impossible job to keep the trails covered, with every small drop of snow followed by a driving rainstorm. Still, Mike Hussey and his crew worked long hours to make sure there was always something to ski on.
And now, with plenty of snow, the new deep woods trails that they cut last summer have really transformed skiing at Bread Loaf. It’s been fun to see the parking lot filled much of the winter, and the huge number of young people out skiing and racing, and especially all the families out discovering the pleasures of the sport. What a winter.
