This past Friday night Bristol Mountain had a Nordic Skiing by Moonlight event. It started with a little yoga by Melissa Endres, Spa & Fitness Director, Life Path Spa, dinner (hot dogs or burger), an hour of cross-country skiing by moonlight and then a bon fire with hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows. The 1795 Acorn Inn hosted Snow East Magazine Travel Writer, Paris Wolfe, for the evening. Paris, Valerie Knoblauch, President, Finger Lakes Visitors Connection and I had a chance to attend the event. It’s safe to say a fun time was had by all. And you should have seen that moon! Thank you to Drew Broderick, Director of Sales & Marketing Director, Bristol Mountain for hosting the event.
There is still plenty of skiing left especially after the eight or so inches of snow we had yesterday. Do I see cross-country skiing in my future this afternoon?
Don’t forget about our Stay Two Nights Get One Night Free Package. It makes for a relaxing winter getaway … and, you can get in plenty of cross-country skiing.
After seven winters in upstate New York… this is the first winter I’ve ever been cross-country skiing. And, I have to say… I love it. There are several great places to ski close to the 1795 Acorn Inn. Just 10 minutes away is Bristol Mountain. They have two groomed trails, one that is even lit and has snow-making capabilities. They have a special skiing by moonlight event this Friday, 2/18/11 and I’ll be there… not only for the skiing but the BBQ, bonfire and hot chocolate. And, just about 20 minutes away… Cuming Nature Center. Both have equipment rentals or bring your own. And, just 10 minutes away, Ontario Country Park has miles of open trails. Whether you are a beginner like me, or an expert, you are sure to have a great time. And, when you are done skiing, sit by our fireplace in the Gathering Room before soaking those muscles in our outdoor spa… open year round. A glass of finger lakes wine goes down well about this time…
