2. It's a frigid Saturday morning
and without preparation, I find myself at the first #BillKoch youth race of the season, hoping to lay a healthy skiing foundation for my kids. Thanks to the wonders of modern snowmaking, we drive north to an icy granular loop of white stuff. My girls have only skied once since last February. Still we load the car with skis, boots, poles, snow-pants, hats, mittens, and snacks, and make it to #GraftonPonds 20 minutes before the start of the Lollipop Race.
