This is almost like our ecrc. Sorta.

TGR's version of this thread with a wider range of shenanigans and more arguments. But fun:

Well, you asked for it. Here is the blow-by-blow report of my first ski outing of the season.

After the gloppy storm of yesterday, today dawned clear and pleasant, temps right at the freezing mark. Since the new snow is likely to disappear tomorrow, I figured I had better slap some sticks on my feet and sample.

It was a bush ski day, and fishscales always work better with a little chemical treatment.



I tackled the Dog Walk Trail, with the dog charging ahead to avoid appearing in any photos. It was a winter wonderland.



Apparently I made a bad wax choice. If you kept moving, it was OK. Stop for a second: GLOP!



I hereby claim first low-angle hardwood tele turns of the season in the Hinterlandian backcountry.



It was good first day and I am digging my new Patagonia Nano Puff pullover (green layer under the shell). Very light and surprisingly warm.

SBR- picked up my first skis with scales or should I say partial scales. What wax are you using? This will be new. Usually it's skins and normal skis.
