Next up was Snowy Mountain which was a long 7.8 mile trail run with over 2,100' of climb/descent. The first half was very enjoyable and very run-able. The 2nd half not so much so. It was totally socked in when I got to the summit.
I got to Gore Mountain a bit earlier than expected and found out the lift runs every day starting at 11am. With some time to burn I headed out for a 4 mile run on the road. I felt that the 9+ miles up/down Gore would be a bit much knowing that I'd be aiming for Katahdin the next day. I still had a 3 mile run with 600' of climb/drop once I got to the top of the Gondola. I had the ski area to myself as it was drizzly and fogged in.

After Gore, I drove 2+ hours to Montpelier to meet up with Eric and Murdoch. We closed out the day with a 2.5 mile run in the city park and then feasted on Hawaiian pizza.
