Nice to see you "do the dance" during these last days of good snow. Looks like warm-up in store for the next 10 days. It might all disappear. We need some more pre-cooled El-Nino moisture...

You've been the primary nordic 'seek and find' for southern NH by the coast. The crystal ball message is indeed 'defective" for the time being.

I recall a video of a guy nordic skiing inside a big warehouse somewhere (Europe?) with summer outside.

That is the same ski facility I saw in the video I mentioned above (in a skate ski lesson menu). Your link fills in the details. I googled "indoor nordic ski training" today and this place was shown. A coworker pointed out that one skier seemed to be climbing (the unexpected 12% grade seemed like a visual slight of hand).

The Swiss particle accelerator comes to mind viewing the "floor plan". It doesn't cost anything to heat - bring it on:-).

More here about the XC ski tunnel in Torsby, Sweden.

They even have a shooting range for biathlon...

Tack så mycket!

There´s some winter outside here by now but not necessarily skiable - at least not enjoyably so...
I´ve never tried indoors skiing, but you never know what the future will bring. My son and his girlfiend have been to Torsby as have several others in the club.
