Wind Sledding!

Wind Sledding:Sometimes conditions are just right for a bit of fun on the observation deck. Christmas Eve presented such a moment with winds that were strong, but not too strong, and temperatures that weren’t too severe. Coupled with a nice coat of rime ice on the deck this makes for the perfect deck sledding weather.

After a wonderful dinner, served up by our volunteers Susan and John Van Slooten, Jon and I headed out with sleds in hand to do some non gravitational sledding. The results were brilliant and have been captured on film for your amusement!

Happy Holidays to all from the summit crew!
