With all the snow and the recent warmer temperatures, a ski weekend was in order. Saturday we went local and did ~15km into substantial wind. The snow is a bit dusty, not much glide, and the wind drifts the snow into the tracks, so it was not very fast and lots of derailments. Even the one downhill hairpin turn to go back uphill was slow enough for me to step turn without ever falling.
I look forward to getting my waxing skills up to speed (haha) so I can move quickly even over this cold dusty snow.
