Canton, NY, Mar 11, 2011 — As rain and sleet and mud make us pine away for spring, let's take a moment to acknowledge what we've had - more than two months of a snow-covered landscape, an opportunity to scoot out for a cross-country ski pretty much anytime, anywhere.
In Canton, loads of skiers take advantage of the St. Lawrence University golf course for a quick trek. It's right in North Country Public Radio's backyard. David Sommerstein has this appreciation of the lunchtime ski.
NOTE: As alert listeners have told me, the cross-country ski trails are maintained by volunteer Pete Ames, chief engineer at the Best Western, on his own time. Thanks a million, Pete!
