We had snow in our yard yesterday so I guess southern Ontario wins for a change!
I can relate to being “mentally done” with Nordic skiing. For weeks, I cheer for winter over spring, then there is always a moment of transition when I admit defeat and start cheering for dry bike trails. This year the ski trails closed before I was ready but our trip south has put me into bike mode anyway.
Yeah it is funny that I feel this urge to end things on my own terms instead of embracing the next season. At the moment I am not quite "done" with backcountry skiing but conditions aren't cooperating to allow another trip or two out.
Sorry to hear that your mom took a turn for the worse. Feel free to touch base if you have any medical questions.
