My first ski for '07

I was feeling so cabin fevered today, that I had my first x/c ski tonight - I told myself to simply go and it'd be good for me and my blahs so was away at 4pm and back by 7pm. It was warmer up there than in town! Wind blew away a lot of the snow, but there is enough for the kids on the weekend, and for me to do 5-6 back and forwards runs over the same bits. In the photo if you look carefully you'll see the Lodge on the right.

There is about a km of groomed snow around the Lodge, and next week promises more. Carl is busy stretching it as far as he can for this weekend with his groomer, and he's done a very credable job. An unusal wind direction in last week's storm stripped away the snow on the likes of Mary's Trail and all corners of a similar aspect to the turning point on Highlander.

It was great catch up on my winter friends all back from overseas. I'm suspecting I may have Capt. Ron as a flatmate [decided to rent out two rooms and have some company]

Meanwhile in town here the frosts are amazing, however I hesitate to call them frosts as these have a dew [point] and they freeze white. There is no moisture about though to do this, so it's just plain b. cold! Minus ten last night easily I'd say.

Hoo! That's pretty cold! We didn't get above 5 degrees today. Cold is fine by me when there's sun, but there's been such a wind chill factor lately that it hasn't been much fun to be outside.
