“As Director of the Deerfield Youth Program, I would like to thank the  organization and staff for an outstanding program.  Families from Deerfield were given XC ski instructions, equipment and an on the spot clinic. Once all of us were comfortable in our skis, we were given a guided tour along the trails at Breia (BROEP ). This event was a positive experience, one which we hope to do again in the future.” – Karen Day, Youth Director, Town of Deerfield
