Winter season 18/19

Postby Neuro » Wed Oct 31, 2018 1:12 pm

First snow flurry yesterday, but likely at least a month before there's hope of going out here in Oslo, Norway.

Thinking to get rid of my skate skis this year as last season was almost all classic because of skin skis and better track selection.

You? Any new equipment or plans for when the snow comes?

Plans? Maybe do some more crust skiing, but it is too icy off track at the moment. I will try and do some classic, maybe on days when skating would get bogged down too much. So much to improve, so little time.

For fun I threw this little video together at the start of the season, it is up at Chamrousse above Grenoble.

the "selfie" shot was with the camera "balanced" on the end of a ski pole so I was worried it would fall off into the snow.

Not a great start for the US east coast; however, those in the southern rocky mountains (New Mexico and Northern AZ) are having an epic season!

Here in the mid-Atlantic its been mild and rainy and so far remains me of the 97/98 winter.
