The New England Masters Skiing brought their Sise Cup racing series to Suicide Six on Sunday. Despite the soft snow and heavy fog, the 65 racers ranging in age from 21 to 86 made two runs on the hill. The Class 11, 12 and 13 Men (the oldest is 86) have been skiing since they were youngsters. Their first ski experiences were on wooden skis climbing up hills and skiing down them in their backyards. When asked if they missed the old rope tows and J-bars, they all agreed that the hi-speed quads are the best. One man said, “We get more snow time with the new technology.”
