I first got into cross country skiing three years ago, when Nick's coworker retired and moved to Arizona. Cheap skis! Yay! It quickly became one of my favorite things in the world and I've sloooooowly gotten better. Mostly in the past I just skiied on my grandmas farm and at local parks. This year I'm branching out more and have found two ABSOLUTE GEMS to ski at:
These offer much more challenging terrain than farm fields and trust me, going uphill is SUCH AN ARM WORKOUT! In fact my arms are so tired from today, I can barly type. ;)
What is so great is that Nick has gotten on board this year with the obsession too. The last couple years he would go with me if I begged, and he would hate it. Not sure why he loves it so much now, but he does and he just ordered himself BRAND NEW SKIIS!! They arrived today; so I'm thinking he's going to want to try them out this weekend! Yay!
