Last weekend, I went skate skiing with a couple friends at Snow Mountain Ranch (just north of Winter Park ski area). Trail passes for the day were $15. But if you got a lesson, passes were free. And lessons were free that day. So, we decided to take a lesson. I have been skate skiing for over 4 years, but have never taken an official lesson. I learned a ton and really improved my technique.
Now I can't wait to xc ski with Josh. A couple weeks ago, he was able to stay ahead of me .... I am ready to make sure that doesn't happen again.
