Well, its almost spring and that's a special time in the ski world. At this point in the ski season the sun has gotten high enough and strong enough to change the snow particles to refrozen speed bullets. At Hanson Hills today i skied for 2.5 hours on the perfectly groomed trails - it was so fast i had a hard time even making myself work at it - pure fun and enjoyment. Soon, it will get warm enough to get off-trail and go wherever you want. Crust skiing allows you to effortlessly glide right across the surface of any field, through the woods dodging trees, or across lakes. good stuff.
