Lighting a path through the darkness once again, Ski Pontiac had torches blazing at their second Moonlight Ski of the year.
Held at Pine Lodge, guests had the opportunity to ski to their heart’s delight along a path illuminated by burning torches, although the track was a bit shorter than what regulars are used to.
“We’ve shortened the trail because of the ice conditions,” explained Connie Renaud, event organizer with Ski Pontiac. “The rain we had a week ago wrecked everything.”
Renaud said that the back and forth temperatures experienced in January allowed for a buildup of ice that makes skiing difficult.
