WINTERSPORTS — A glorious day was to be found on the Schweitzer Mountain Nordic Trails on Sunday.

What wasn't to be found?  Many people.

“Glorious day of spring skiing at Schweitzer,” said Jette Thorslund Benedetto, who was skiing with Kurt Stellwagen. “We had the XC trails all to ourselves. Views were everywhere and the snow wasn't bad at all.”
