Ice, Snow & Dirt!

Kirsten wanted to have a little ski. I said, "sure" and out we went to MTU Trails. Just a little jaunt. We had to skip around some bare spots, but there were still places to ski. The temperature was well below freezing. The remaining snow base previously slushy had re-frozen to ice, with a quarter-inch of new snow on top.

This was our first time using our old skis as 'rock' skis. Kirstens had been ground and waxed very recently; she had a great time. Mine haven't been seen to since last year; they had round edges and maybe no wax. I certainly learned more about traveling on a flat ski, surprisingly on my right side. I enjoyed being able to keep going; I only took one pause, more grumpy than tired. I had a grudgingly good time.
