Battle Creek

Cold. I chose to ski in the morning because the evening promised to be even colder (below -10, rather than barely above).

As of this morning it wasn't regroomed since the coating of snow last night, which was very sand-papery. The classic track was mostly skied in, especially in the woods—skiing in the open is a frigid endeavor. The big hills in back, however, are really not that tricky when there is so much friction on the cold snow! (It helps to ski it in daylight, too, it was exceptionally bright this morning. And exceptionally cold.)

With the new snow mucking up the roads (that's what happens when it snows at -4 and salt is useless) I chose wrongly to take 94 and sat in traffic for half an hour. Blast.
