Mount Greylock, Wahconah Skiers Kick Off Season
iBerkshires.com reports for most high school athletes, it has been a disorienting year of uncertainty and constantly shifting schedules.
For Nordic skiers, that’s every year.
But the area’s most weather-sensitive sport took a step toward normalcy on Saturday morning when the Wahconah cross country ski team hosted Mount Greylock.
And although the format and the rules each required some modifications due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the snow was perfect and the smiles were plentiful as the Mounties took first in the boys and girls dual races.
Like everything else at Wahconah during this year of construction, the course layout was a little different, but it still took full advantage of the challenging hill that racers had to tackle twice in the course of competition.
