sledding til dark

We have been skiing a good deal at Pineland Farms this year, and every ski has ended with some time on the sledding hill.  It is a motivator, that promise of trading in your confining equipment and movement mostly in a controlled and forward direction, for flopping and jumping and sled tranferring and general silly hootenanny on an awesome open and fast hill, that keeps tired legs moving forward.  Well, that and the chocolate milk jugs back at the Market at the visitors center.  

We arrive just as the light is fading.  And usually stay until either the cold drives us back to the car, or someone needs the bathroom, or until I can't even see their profiles when they stand at the top of the hill anymore.

And even then, they are usually begging for one more ride.
