Rikert to host family fun, dancing and food
UPDATE — This event was cancelled on Jan. 25
RIPTON — Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton, on Saturday, Feb. 4, will host the Nordic Rendezvous, a gathering of family and friends for a day of winter magic in which participants will get to revel in their shared love of snow, brisk air, pink cheeks, skiing, and heart-warming fires.
The event will begin at 2 p.m. with the “Back to the Barn Tour” for cross country skiing, fat bikes and snowshoes. Hot trailside treats will be offered. Then, as dusk settles, luminaries will lead to a gathering around a bonfire with some mulled cider. In the Bread Loaf Inn there will be a buffet of hot soups and chili, breads, salads and dessert. Local wine, beer and hard cider will be available at a cash bar.
The festivities conclude with an old-fashioned barn dance with the group Honey in the Hive playing in the historic Bread Loaf Barn. The cost is adults $60, children $45 and table for six $310.
