Ken Roberts and Sharon Marsh Roberts  

We've done a lot of skiing in the Hudson Valley -- cross-country, backcountry, downhill, and rollerski.  We also ski in many other places in North America and Europe.

We started out by learning downhill skiing in the Catskills, especially at Hunter Mountain.  Soon we moved out into exploring the backcountry on skis in the Catskills and Shawangunks.  

Nowadays in the Hudson Valley in the winter we ski mostly cross-country on trails.  But we do lots of backcountry skiing (and some lift-served downhill skiing and snowboarding) in other regions of North America and Europe in winter and even more in the spring season.

In the summer and fall we have fun riding our tandem bicycle on the roads of the Hudson Valley, and we've made up a large website called Bike Hudson Valley. In recent years Ken had been skating on the roads and has set up a website Skate Hudson Valley.
