One Family's Backcountry Misadventures
A true story of winter survival ... and fun!
October 7, 2011
|When old friends issued an invitation to share a cabin for a weekend of
cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, I jumped at the idea. Spending
time with people I don’t see enough while engaging in an activity I

I’m the only Nordic skier in the
family. My husband Jason, and our children, Abbie (10) and Milo (7),
prefer the pace and ease of downhill, but I argued that they really
hadn’t tried cross-country, or not recently. I sold the idea around the
dinner table to an underwhelmed audience: “I promise; it’ll be great!”
