  • Best in Snow

    first_imgSnowmelt gathers in Red Creek, which flows through the heart of the Dolly Sods Wilderness. Photo: Ludovic Moore of AKA Flash PhotographyPerched high upon the Allegheny Plateau at 4,000 feet, Dolly Sods offers sweeping, Canadian-esque vistas and a destination that is (for most non-Nova Scotians) seemingly out of this world. The Dolly Sods Wilderness is populated by fields of cranberries, blueberries, and huckleberries, rhododendron, hardwood forests, marshy bogs, open grassy sods strewn with large boulders, and stunted and flagged red spruce trees gnarled from the strong winds of the high plains.The ‘sods’ refer to the large open fields  which were once used for grazing and blueberry harvesting by the Dollys, or Dahles, German descendents of Johann Dahle, who settled the area in the 1780s after deserting the British Colonists. Hence the name, Dolly Sods.Here are three winter-worthy adventures in the Sods:1. Snow cave camping in northern Dolly SodsYou can backcountry camp anywhere in the Sods, so long as you are 100 yards away from the road. Our favorite spot is the Upper Red Creek Trail. Because of high winds and snowfall, Dolly Sods has many snowdrifts. Dig into the lee side of a drift, and you can dig a snow cave, complete with a kitchen and multiple bedrooms.“It takes a while to dig a snow cave, and you get a little bit wet, but once you get in your snow castle, it’s worth it,” says Chip Chase, owner of White Grass Ski Area.Head to Timberline Ski Resort, grab a one-way pass and take the lift up to Salamander Run, or ski-hike up from the bottom. Head to the large, sharp curve known as Governor’s Turn, and from there, a trail will head east for a short 150-foot jaunt through the woods that will drop you at a four-way trail junction in the Dolly Sods Wilderness.  Take Blackbird Knob trail a few miles east to Upper Red Creek Trail. Through the midsection of Upper Red Creek Trail strong winds carve out incredible snowdrifts that can be ideal for snowcave camping as late as into the spring skiing season.2. Cross-country ski Breathed Mountain TrailAlong Breathed Mountain Trail you’ll see gorgeous sections of lush green forests scattered among wide open plains and boulder fields left behind from the glacial era. With enough snow these large boulders will be buried in the snow so you can ski right over them. Keep your eyes peeled for the rare snowshoe hare.3. Snowshoe Red Creek TrailThe southern portion of Dolly Sods is more thickly wooded, allowing the snow to be protected from the harsher winds of the open sods. From Dry Fork on Lanesville Road, take the Red Creek Trail north to the Fisher Spring Trail. These two trails weave through thick Red Spruce forests dotted by occasional open mountain meadows.  They often cross the (hopefully) frozen Red Creek.Cold TruthsBring a scraper for your skis. With the many creek crossings, they are likely to get wet and freeze up.Exploring the Sods in winter is best after the snow has accumulated and hardened for a few days, allowing you to stay up on top of it easily. Even more ideal is immediately after a fresh snowfall later in winter, allowing for fluffier snow to accumulate on top of the already established base layer.The Dolly Sods is a federally designated wilderness. It is likely you won’t see other people, cell phone service is spotty, and the trails are often not marked or blazed at all.An area trail map is an absolute must: Try wvhighlands.org for some printable maps. You can also get maps at the U.S. Forest Service in Elkins and the Potomac Ranger Station in Petersburg.Nearby Winter WonderlandsCanaan Valley State Park is right next to the Dolly Sods Wilderness and offers an equally impressive yet distinctly different geography laced with trails and adventure.Blackwater Falls lies just to the north, spilling its tannin-colored waters powerfully over the edge of the rocks–a sight that has attracted people for centuries.Dolly Sods is bordered by Timberline Ski Resort as well as White Grass Ski Area, a cross-country ski playland.last_img read more

  • Women’s Soccer: Early season success offers chance at redemption

    first_imgAfter a 2018 fall defined by regular season promise that ultimately failed to play out in the postseason, the Badgers (4-1-1) are off to a characteristically hot start in 2019.In 2018, the Badgers failed to advance past the first round of the Big Ten postseason tournament following a heart-breaking overtime penalty kick loss to Illinois.But despite the disappointment felt towards their loss to the Illini, a team they previously beat in the regular season, the Badgers soldered on to the NCAA tournament where they handily defeated their first two opponents.Women’s soccer: Badgers earn their stripes in dominant NCAA Tournament showing versus MemphisThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (13-3-4, 6-2-3 Big Ten) beat the Memphis Tigers (17-4-0, 7-2-0 AAC) in Memphis, Read…Only the No.1 ranked team at the time — the Stanford Cardinals — managed to stop the Badgers in the middle of their late-season heater.Defeated by a score of 0–1, the Badgers put up a formidable fight to the Cardinals who, in turn, advanced all the way to the semifinals of the NCAA tournament before falling to Florida State 0–2.The Badgers showed promise in the end of their season even as they ultimately failed to advance past the sweet sixteen of the NCAA tournament.Perhaps most crucial to the hope that the Badgers can build upon this feat is the fact that they returned four of their top five goal scorers from their previous season’s squad.Lauren Rice, Cameron Murtha, Maia Cella and leading-scorer Dani Rhodes all return for either their junior or senior seasons with the team.These four players constituted the core of offensive production for the Badgers in 2018, and the majority of them certainly did not let their foot off the gas pedal coming into 2019.Rhodes and Murtha are tied for a team-leading two goals through just six games of the season. Rice also scored a goal this season, one of only five players on the team to have done so up to this point.The Badgers’ offensive prowess most clearly demonstrated itself in their two wins at the end of the season versus Memphis and Hofstra University who they defeated 3–0 and 6–0, respectively.Women’s soccer: Wisconsin hung tight with nation’s best in NCAA Tournament, Coach Paula Wilkins excited for next yearThe No. 15 Wisconsin Badgers women’s soccer team fell 1–0 to then No. 1 ranked Stanford just before Thanksgiving. With Read…Luckily for the Badgers, the players who both drove this stunning performance to cap the season returned and are back in business for 2019.On the other side of the field, returning for the Badgers following her opening season is junior goalkeeper Jordyn Bloomer.Despite her lack of experience coming into the 2018 season, Bloomer performed impressively as she attempted to follow in the footsteps of the previous goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem.Head coach Paula Wilkins spoke of Bloomer after the 2018 season.“She stepped up to the task,” Wilkins said. “She did everything we could have asked her to do.”Bloomer is once again filling the shoes of her predecessors in 2019. Off to a blazing start, she has allowed just three goals in the first six games of the season.Furthermore, Bloomer’s save percentage is 81.3% — already higher than the total she managed to acquire at the end of 2018.The Badgers, led by Bloomer, also tallied a highly impressive three shutouts in just their first six games of the year.All the pieces are in place for a Badger squad ready to build upon the success it reached for in the 2018 season.From a set of returning offensive threats who power their offensive to a stalwart keeper who shows no signs of weakness, the Badgers are set to make another postseason run in 2019.Women’s soccer: Dani Rhodes is Big Ten Player of the Week after impressive weekendThe No. 17 University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (7–1–1, 1–0–1 Big Ten) tied Northwestern(6–1–2, 0–1–1 Big Ten) 1–1 Friday Read…The season is still in its early stages, but the Badgers already improved their performances against top ranked opponents.In just their second game of the season, the Badgers faced Florida State, the team that defeated Stanford in the 2018 NCAA tournament and ultimately went on to win the national title.In 2018, Florida State defeated the Badgers 3–0 early in the season. The scoreline this season? Just 1–0 in favor of the No. 1 ranked Seminoles.Women’s soccer: Rhodes reflects on team’s high expectations, early season challengesThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team came into the 2018 season with significant expectations alongside a slew of obstacles Read…The Badgers, currently ranked No. 15 in the nation, still fell to FSU, but their loss came after a hard fought game that ended in the first half of overtime play.It’s possible this game was an anomaly. Yet with such a strong set of experienced players, it doesn’t seem likely.The Badgers certainly proved they have the talent and experience needed to compete with the best teams in the nation. Now, they must go out and execute down the stretch as they failed to do in 2018.last_img read more

  • Shaban Lubega: PML Daily Premier League team of the Week 10

    first_img Tags: premier leagueTeam of the week Christian Pulisic (right) scored a hat trick on Saturday. (PHOTO/Courtesy)Liverpool maintained their six-point lead at the top of the Premier League thanks to a 2-1 come-back victory over Tottenham on Sunday. Harry Kane stunned the Reds with the opener inside the first minute but two second-half goals by Jordan Henderson and Muhammad Salah (penalty) ensured Liverpool win the game. The victory takes them onto 28 points, six ahead of City in second.For Man City, they defeated Aston Villa 3-0 on Saturday. After a goalless first-half, Raheem Sterling, IIkay Gundogan and David Silva scored in the second to ensure a 7th victory of the season for Pep Guardiola’s side. City now have 22 points from 10 games.On the same weekend, Christian Pulisic scored a treble as Chelsea beat Burnley 4-2 away from home. The other goals for the Blues was scored by Willian before the home side pulled two back through Jay Rodriguez and Dwight McNeil.Third spot on the log is currently occupied by Leicester City who humiliated Southampton 9-0 on Friday with both Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez scoring hat tricks.On Sunday, Man United overcame Norwich 3-2 despite missing two penalties. Scot McTominay opened the scoring before both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial who had missed from the spot earlier scored once each.Still on Sunday, Arsenal surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to Crystal Palace. Sokratis Papastathoplous and David Luis put Arsenal two up but a Luka Milivoijevic penalty and Jordan Ayew’s second-half strike ensured a share of the points.Elsewhere, Everton were defeated 3-2 by Brighton, Watford drew 0-0 with AFC Bournemouth, West Ham were held to a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United while the game between Newcastle United and Wolves also ended 1-1.Here are the XI players who stood out according to Shaban Lubega.GK: Tim Krul (Norwich City)This is going to raise all sorts of alarms but i am picking Krul in my goal despite conceding three goals in the loss to Man United on Sunday. The Norwich City custodian saved two penalties on the day and for me it is enough to get him the node.RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)Did not score or assist on the night but was at the basis of Liverpool’s 2-1 come-back victory at home to Spurs on Sunday. His passing range was out of this world on the day.LB:  Ben Chilwell (Leicester City)Scored once and assisted twice as Leicester humiliated Southampton 9-0 on Friday.CB: John Stones (Man City)Back from a lay-off, Stones was excellent alongside Fernadinho as City kept a clean sheet in their 3-0 win at home to Aston Villa.CB: Jamal Lascelles (Newcastle United)Scored the opener in Newcastle United’s 1-1 draw at home to Wolves.MF: Jordan Henderson (Liverpool)Often criticized for not being good enough, Henderson was brilliant in the victory over Spurs-scoring the opening goal on the day.MF: Ilkay Gundogan (Man City)Arguably his best performance in a Citizens’ shirt, Gundogan was the chief-orchestrator as City beat Aston Villa 3-0, scoring the third goal.MF: Robbie Brady (Burnley).His side may have lost 4-2 to Chelsea but the Irishman came off the bench to assist both of Burnley’s goals.FW: Christian Pulisic (Chelsea).What a week Pulisic has had! He came off the bench to assist Michy Batshuayi for the winner away to Ajax on Tuesday and then scored a hat trick for Chelsea in the win over Burnley on Saturday.FW: Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)Scored a hat trick in the 9-0 demolition of Southampton on Friday.FW: Ayoze Perez (Leicester City)Perez also scored a hattrick as Leicester humiliated Southampton 9-0.Comments last_img read more
