Snow Report 2/10

I had a chance to slow down, get out early and really enjoy my hill today. I was in the deserted parking lot at first light and got skins on my skis. I started up just after the first rays of morning crested the ridge. It was quiet and cold. It has been so long that I completely forgot how magical a regularly crowded spot in the woods can be when there is no one around.

The first bit of my climb was punishment for being a lazy skier. My legs are strong but my cardio is weak. I was sucking wind something terrible. Eventually I got my heart rate control sorted out and it was a really enjoyable trip after that.

The first down was really good because because of the up. However, it was really firm. I traded my light climbing skis for something with metal in them and continued to make laps with the aid of the chairlifts. It wasn't great. The hill was really firm but there was very little ice.
