The snow we got a few days ago meant that there is finally enough to go XC skiing without worrying about scraping the bottom of the skis on bare ground. This morning I skied around the school trails and then over and around Bald Mountain. The air was cold but the sun was shining on the powdery snow causing it to sparkle like diamonds.
Later in the afternoon Sandy and I skied around the Bald Mountain lake and nature trail under mostly blue skies. We are going to try and get over to Stony Creek tomorrow to ski there. I ride there quite a bit but have never skied. They groom the trails which will be a nice change but I hope that the numerous users haven't thinned out the snow cover too much.
