I went XC-skiing for the first time this winter. The West Ridge trails are in good condition and the little bit of fresh snow that fell this morning was great. I used a pair of waxless skiis for the first time and they felt slower than the waxable ones but in my case, slower is good. I went on all of the lit trails a couple of times around and I'm guessing, covered at least 8 miles. I didn't have the gps with me so I'm guessing that I was averaging at least 4 mph for two hours. I know that I was going faster than I usually walk which is about 3.5 mph. Effort was pretty constant for the entire two hours which felt pretty good. I'm pretty sore now especially my right shoulder.
