Ready to pick up my ski pass at the Nordic Center yurt!
To get started skiing, you can go right or left – both routes will go uphill to begin with.
Time to strip layers, and work hard up a steeper hill.
I was testing out some different skis, that have a small skin on the bottom. I felt like these were extra slippery for me, making the uphill harder.
Weeee! The downhill is so much fun!
I absolutely loved the freshly groomed tracks. Sundance Nordic Center keeps them perfect!
Winding my way through the trees. As you continue to ski down Lena’s Loop, you’ll have a view of Stewart Falls as well! This was my favorite ski trail of the day – just make sure you ski it in a counterclockwise direction so you get more downhill. If you’re looking for a workout and want uphill, then ski this clockwise.
What a beautiful day to be outside. On a Wednesday morning I only saw two other skiers. So nice!
After skiing on the Rossignol R-SKIN’s for about an hour, I went back and traded them out for my own skis, Alpina’s. What can I say, I like my own gear 🙂
I’m glad I tried the new skis out, but they were a bit too long and slippery for me.
I did take a mini lesson in Skate Skiing, and I picked it up much faster than when I tried back in 2010-2011. The skis are very different, the uphill is way harder for me with my asthma, but I did like the gliding action and flow on the downhill.

Huge thank you to Sundance Nordic Center for setting me up with skis and a quick lesson!
