XC Skiing as much fun as Biking??
So, we are spending some time in the condo in the Colorado Rockies.
Much, much snow. A few years back, I bought some Hickory XC skiis at a garage sale, and got some cheap shoes - sort of a Wal Mart approach.
Anyway, we went to the Frisco Nordic Cross Country ski center today, and we decided we would try the top quality rental skis instead of the old cheap stuff.
WOW - the difference was like a Wal Mart bike special compared to my Lemond. Were they ever great. We had a blast - my wife said as much fun as biking!! Went several miles on nicely groomed trails with a light snow falling at about 20F amongst stately pines and furs. About 6 feet of snow on the ground.
Ended up buying the rental skis, poles and boots for both of us. Will go again tomorrow.
So, there are some things as much fun a biking!! Also, GREAT exercise.
Anyone else XC ski??
