Chili Party Beaver Meadow Lodge

On a glorious February morning with temperature at 15 degrees, fourteen hardy people made the 2.3 mile climb from the parking lot to Beaver Meadow Lodge. We were fortunate that the trail was well packed. We all carried some firewood as well as our contribution for the chili party. Once the fire was burning brightly, the shelter was very comfortable. This is the first time I have ever been warm enough at this event. The food and companionship was great. Everyone was well fed including the seven Johnson State College students who came to the shelter just as we started to eat. With full stomachs and a smile on our faces, we departed for the downhill cross-country ski or snowshoe to the parking lot.
