Skiing Trip I HAD READ and heard much about the craze that sends hundreds of New Yorkers gaily up into New England every week-end in the winter time, so I determined to find out what it was all about. I purchased a pair of white ash skis, seven and a half feet long, and two ski poles. I also bought a pair of heavy ski boots, cap and wax. I learned from a friend that Pittsfield, Mass., is a good place to go for skiing, so I decided to go there. Weather reports for skiing are published every Friday in the New York Times, and one Friday morning I read this report for Pittsfield: “Skiing excellent, snow 20 inches, loose surface, temperature 15, sky clear.” This was what I had been waiting for, so I got ready and left on the early afternoon snow train. Late in the afternoon I arrived in Pittsfield, and after eating a large dinner — for the cold climate makes good appetites — I spent the night in a hotel. I awoke with the dawn of a cold clear day, and after eating my break- fast I went out to the practice slopes. At first I could hardly stand up on those slippery pieces of wood, but after many downhill slides and falls, I gained some measure of balance and control. The sun had risen rather high and it became quite warm, so I shed my jacket, though the tempera- ture of the air was about 20°. I now sought out the help of the hotel expert. He taught me how to double-stem, which is the underlying principle of ski control. I had a book on skiing which gave me instructions for making turns so I set about to teach myself how to make such turns as Christianias, Telemarks, stem-turns. These terms are imported from Norway. By dusk I had managed to make a few fairly decent turns. I now considered myself pretty good, so I decided that I would try some down mountain running on the morrow — Sunday. I think I nearly ate out the hotel that night and I was asleep before I hit the bed. The next morning I was very stiff and sore, but I took the bus for Mt. Greylock. Mt. Greylock is not far from Pittsfield and is the highest moun- tain in Massachusetts. It is 3,505 feet in height. A ski trail is cut twisting down the sides of this peak and it is termed “Thunderbolt,” one of the most difficult trails in New England. This is what the Berkshire ski map says about the run: “Thunderbolt ski run; east slope of Mt. Greylock; class,
