It may not look like much. The darkness hides just how small the patch is. But the wizards at Weston Ski Track have made snow. Just about 200 meters worth so far but it’s enough to get on the skinny skis and feel something slick underfoot.
It only took a few laps for the feel of the snow to return. Then I jumped right in, doing a speed workout with the CSU kids. One lap fast, two laps recovery. Repeat several times with V2, double-pole and no-pole skate. I felt pretty cracked and sloppy by the time I was doing the no-pole.
But it didn’t matter because I was back on snow.
So happy I can finally put away the rollerskis until next year!
