Are you ever spooked? I'm a baby when it comes to being out alone at night. Slendy is always lurking just beyond where your light reaches...

Night skiing is awesome :)

Yes and no! Like the outdoor expert in me says "there's literally nothing dangerous out here in the wilderness", but the asshole part of me says "remember that video you saw documenting *insert scary stuff*, what if the tree shadows that you passed weren't actually shadows...."
But then another part of me says "you don't have to do exams if you're seriously mauled..."
(The center also has these relatively thin human sized slates of rock that they placed standing up on some of the trails, so that's 2spooky4me)
If I were to choose the perfect condition for night skiing, it would be when it's a clear night and the moon is full and bright! So at least I can see way ahead of my without the light! Which was the exact opposite of what last night's skiing was

But it's okay, because the tears and adrenaline spike make me push harder! =)

Correction: Night skiing in moon light is awesome! You really donĀ“t need a headlight then.

I've gone on a run at 2am all by myself, with no headlight, using my phone's flash light occasionally. Really increases your pace XD
