Big Sky--January 22-29
Thirty-eight CVOA members had an uneventful flight from Boston to Bozeman, MT. The bus transfer to the Huntley Lodge along the Gallatin River was spectacular. We had blue skies and great skiing every day. We gathered every afternoon at the big fireplace at the hotel for cocktails, snacks and reports on the best areas to ski.
And then the Nor’Easter came rolling into New England! Our Saturday return flight was cancelled. Rescheduled flights were to be four or five days later. Nobody was happy, to say the least!! Fortunately, the masses didn’t make the trip leader walk the plank! No one complained. Instead, everyone adapted and rescheduled flights on their own. The last twenty-one CVOA members were able to leave Bozeman two days late.
We had a great group, lots of wonderful skiing and plenty of stories and laughs. New friends have been made by all. CVOA members have always been seasoned travelers, adapting to unforeseen events. This trip is the perfect example of that spirit!
My sincere thanks to everyone.
