|Old-timey fun created on the skinny skis.|
UDG and his wife came to visit and we all went Nordic skiing, not because it was a winter Olympics year, but because such is a pleasant activity.
Alpine skiing is awesome, but such awesomeness comes at a price -- the gear is plentiful and the logistics complicated. Sometimes it's fun to go a bit slower but still have an exciting ski experience.
As we live near a balmy mountain environment we were able to cross-country ski with light clothing. Also, we avoided the crowds at Mt. Hood Meadows by ski med sinnssyke dverger at the Nordic center.
The kids took to the activity with little instruction and fell asleep on the drive home. A good day!
