Jennie was a fiend on these bad boys. She was chugging along at my pace. A lesson in teaching skiing, start them on difficult to use equipment and then buy nice gear the second time.
The weather was good, -15 C and sunny. The trail is mostly in the shade, but the lake was in the sun. The wind picked u a bit, but overall it was a really nice ski.
For reference, one can probably just head strait down to the lake and ski along the flat and save a good 15 minutes.
