The skiing is pretty darn nice. The high about 11º today. And a dusting of snow. Cold snow is sparkly, light and topping off everything. The moon was setting, the sunrise a little pink/orange. And the stars……… I get up and go down to start the fires in the barn around 6am. And the colder it is the harder it gets to get dressed and get out. But the show the sky puts on makes it all worth it.

Today will be warmer, but only 11º. You still need to be smart about your clothing choices.
Wear the neck gaiter. Wear the wool socks. One good pair. Darn Tough and Smart Wool are both a great choice, there are others. A good hiking sock. Please don’t try to get by with thin cotton socks. And the toe warmers on the top of your toes, the experiments show to work best.
