SATURDAY February 20th– Seven Mason students drove out to White Grass Ski Touring Center in Davis, West Virginia for a day of cross country skiing with Outdoor Adventures. The sun was shining and the temps were warm making for perfect spring skiing conditions where there was a good base. The warm temperatures also meant sections of White Grass’s 30 miles of trail criss-crossing Cabin Mountain, Roundtop, and Bald Knob, had turned back into dirt so hiking was required to access some of the better snow.

After a quick lesson and a warmup lap around the snowfarm the crew headed off  for the 6 mile circumnavigation  of Roundtop Mountain.
