I have really been itching to get out and strap on my cross-country skis. Sunday we got out our cross-country skis and snowshoes and headed to Mt. Haggin for what we were hoping would be our first ski of the season. We were not disappointed; no snowshoes today. Even though grooming will not start for another couple of weeks, the snow had been packed enough to make for good skiing on the traveled trails. The trails were a bit rough as hunters had used them and their were foot holes all over ski tracks. No exposed grass or rocks makes for a great early season ski. Temps were great and the trees sheltered us from wind. I discovered a couple of tweaks that will need to be made in equipment this year.
Bottom like it was great to get out, and I am ready for good snow closer to home.
