Looking up the Riva Ridge ski trail
After hiking Mt. Greylock, I decided to hike up Mt. Institute for some more exercise and to see how the off season work at the ski area was progressing. I ascended the Competition and Upper Competition trails and descended via Minnie Dole, Riva Ridge, Outback, Snow Dance, Exhibition, and Danny's Run.
The trails were nicely mowed and fairly dry. There was also some great foliage to be seen.
