Better Than Nothing/ Time For A Snow Dance

hard fast skiingOPEN

The skiing is fast. Not for the faint of heart, not for beginners. If you are new to skiing, it is a good time to try snowshoeing.

6º at 7:00am.

Forecast high, 15º. Going to be cold. For info on dressing for the cold.

This is double pole skiing and good for klister. Fast, no tracks.

I am going to say this a different way. Beginner trails will ski at an intermediate level. Intermediate trails at an expert level. If you fall it will hurt.

If you are new to skiing it would be a great! day for a snow shoe. The sun is out, the weather is nice.

I am going to go ski the Turkey. And then I am going to get some sand to sand the path to the composting toilet.

The temperature for the weekend is 43º, Saturday and 39º, Sunday. The snow slows down when it warms up.

    It definitely is fast. I went out with wax skis with something called Tape Wax on. It is a universal wax and seemed to work well until 10 minutes in, my kick was gone. So was most of my wax and since it is an expensive, once-a-season application, I won’t be doing that again. What a waste! I resist using my waxless skis because they are slower but that would not have been a problem in this situation. Waxless would be the best choice. Next time!

    1. Sorry about your wax tape. You wouldn’t have lost any speed with waxless skis. Also you bag of waxing goodies, and a pair of gloves are here.

    I’m sure you are right it would have been fine on waxless skis and better on the uphills! I’ll be back to ski soon. Please save my stuff for me!
