On like Donkey Kong!

Snow making has begun at Lake Placid ski jumps, the toll road has snow, feet of snow fell in the U.P, fast grass is found from the Green Mountains to Mt. Van Greene, and mid-season corduroy is rolled on the Tug.  All over HURT nation skiers are gearing up for the start of the race season and enjoying the early cold snap.  The December NYSSRA membership drive has HURT poised for some solid starting club points despite losing some solid masters points to the evil empire (Burt? in black?) but if you haven't wrangled your closest friend, fittest neighbor, or nearest stranger onto skis and into HURT green do it now before December 1st!  We love seeing your early season pics so when you get on snow post it up on the HURT book-o-faces.... or tweet it @hurtnordic #eastyellowstone.  Here are some of our early season favorites so far....

Mr. Mares is laughing at all us rollerskiers while he stands atop feet of Michigan white stuff.

Barb and Chris cruise the toll road!

MDH and Ed "Yeti" Luban enjoy a team ski on the early season white stuff

Directress #1 tests out her fastest boards on the first snow to land on the new trail system at "Mt. Van Greene".  Check out the great weight transfer!

Directress #2 hasn't found the skis yet but is wind-testing the most recent race suit technology. 

Chris Y. is keeping things rolling with Tuesday night workouts, OD skis are planned for the rest of November and with a little luck some team Thanksgiving weekend snow time is in the works.  Keep your eyes on our media empire and plan to join us!  For those at the far edges of HURT nation.....keep us posted on your season with pics and let us know when you are in town.  

Enjoy the start of the season!  Its on like DONKEY KONG!
