Last summer we ran a 5k to raise funds for the small ski resort, Black Mountain. We're awfully glad that we did. We went up there yesterday afternoon to see big brother qualify as an alternate for the Maine J2 team, which will travel to Vermont to compete against skiers from all over New England. He was quite impressed with their Nordic course, as he should be since it is International quality and they also host Olympic qualifiers. And...the younger kiddos finally got to play on the slopes!
