If you make some new tracks. Colder and dryer!

Yes, went to White Farm, groomed trails by the local ski club. I skied a half mile or so on a section of an "unblemished" groomed trail - regular users still being presumably at work. Muddy, icy-rutted parking for contrast.

No falls - at the last down and up near parking a dad and two youngsters came the opposite way. The first youngster, maybe 8 or so, fell and bounced up immediately like on a spring board - his brother, a bit younger, fell once, got up pretty quickly, then fell again - not exactly pleased to be twice-witnessed. I'd say that my days of getting up with facility from a fall, alpine or nordic, are well behind.

Same here: I fell today on a sloped track and had the hardest time getting up from it. My sore arm made the whole challenging.

70th birthday year! Yes, a new decade of "challenge" opens up more opportunities, be wary:-)
