Skinning. Day 4

Every time gets a little better. It’s shameful that it is two months into winter and I have been on my skis only four times, but after the holidays I plan on ramping up my efforts.

Anyway, up until yesterday morning I wondered if I was skiing just because I felt like I had to if I was going to make it in a ski town. This probably explains my lack of effort so far.

Yesterday morning felt different. I got the hang of my climbing risers and felt efficient and strong on the uphill. On the downhill, I had some fun (gasp!) and started to put a little trust in myself and how to use my skis. Somehow I am improving with practice only once a week, so I am excited to see what will happen when I start giving it a few days a week.

This was a few years ago and one of my first times out. Notice that I am sitting back in my seat. This is terrible form and rocks your quads. I have gotten slightly better. I’ll get pics next time I go out to compare.

I didn’t take any pictures. It was a beautiful sunrise, hardly any wind which is very rare in Colorado, and I was with my partner and a really good friend. I can’t think of a better way to start the day.

Get outside. It’s always worth it.
