Skiing the road???
How far up did you have to go?
I'm really looking into learning about earning my turns, backcountry skiing, etc.  and I've always thought of the road being my first taste of doing that.....

Peter you could crush that.

Peter, you need to master the Telemark turn. It is a freeheel tecnhique. As a Nordic specialist, you are a freeheel skier. You can tele on skate skis!

There were a bunch of kids carrying XC skis up as we were walking down the non snowed bottom part. Kids, as in 8-13 years old. Also saw some older guys, looked like Northwood School racers headed down as I was taking my time down. They weren't really turning. The pitch is so shallow, it's mostly just a glide.

You could easily do it, Peter. Passed RonKon on his way up. He said the snow will probably stick around all week.
