One of the perks that Meghan gets through her job are invites to swanky resorts. Last week was Wentworth-by-the-Sea, this week was a client inviting her to the Loon Mountain Ski Resort for a day of snow sports.
Meghan and I don’t ski, but they have more than skiing; our activity of choice was sledding. This isn’t any ordinary sledding, though: they seem to have repurposed an old ski lift and trail. The sleds are snow-tubes with rails and brakes. You take a lift up to the top, ride down for as long as 30 seconds, and head back up. There were few other sledders so we had zero waiting.
After a group lunch with the client and their other guests, the two of us decided to sight-see. We climbed in the car and drove up into the mountains along the Kancamagus Highway. Despite the clouds the views were beautiful.
