Today most of us met up in Strafford for an OD ski in which we unanimously decided to do skate (minus Dennis.) We started skiing at around 10:20 and to our delight, found that the conditions exceeded our expectations. We all started out doing some no pole, working on our technique, and then went and did a bigger loop up top, being able to work on the downhills and tilted trails. Once we got back to the Nordic Center we crossed the road and got ready to go down below. To get down below there is a very long downhill in which the three survivors of are Malcolm, Erik, and Arturo, the rest of us crash landed, some more than once:) When we got down to the bottom we were daunted by the task before us-getting back to the top. None
theless, we made it, although we did have to take a few breaks. At the top, we again worked on some technique and then did the upper loop a couple more times before calling it a day. We officially got 2 hours of ski time, our first OD on snow! and some pretty good conditions:) Thank you Strafford Nordic!!!!
