We have again coordinated with Dave and Scott from Frog Meadow Bed & Breakfast in southern VT for a mid-February weekend for a GO Members “GET-FIT” Winter Cross-Country Ski Getaway. This is an opportunity for Newbies to learn how to cross-country ski and for experienced cross-country skiers to learn new techniques (like skate-skiing) and sharpen their current skills…and for all of us to have fun together! There's also Tubing and you can try try out a fat-tire snow-bike!
Delicious Full Country Breakfasts! Saturday & Sunday mornings will start the day with a hearty, full country breakfast;

Apres-Ski Wood-Fired Hot Tub & Fireplace! Frog Meadow’s wood-fired hot tub will be operating throughout the weekend and in the evening there will be a cozy fire in the fireplace of Frog Meadow’s Great Room, a comfy place to recap the day’s events and enjoy the company of others!
