Better late than never! Continuing the odd winter thus far, we had a few waves of snow storms come through over the weekend. Enough snow so that the small downhill area, which doesn't have snow making equipement, and the nordic area were able to open today....albeit with limited terrain.
So it's time to get the skinny skis out. But before you can ski, you must wax.
Wax on.....Wax off.....
|melting the wax, rubbing on the ski|
|Iron the wax into the ski|
|once wax has cooled, scrape off the wax|
|brush with hard and soft brushes, then ready to go....|
|oh wait....only one down, three to go... And the contents of my wax kit.|
|tsk wants to ski too!! (or doesn't want us to go...)|
|Jim on the trail, showing good form as always.|
|Dana on the trail|
All in all a good first day nordic skate skiing. Hard as always, but a good workout. They need more snow, but the forecast for the next week has nary a flake, and warming temps.
It this it? All we get?
