The first baby steps in 2 years. Cross country on lightweight backcountry gear. Lifts and downhill coming soon.
Surgeries, rehabs and age had me concerned that skiing might be over. I didn’t know they’d open today. I was there only for the used equipment sale.
Flexibility issues mean that I can not get into a tall stiff boot and have great difficulty operating a telemark cable heel lever. I don’t, i.e. can’t, do that anymore. I need step-in bindings and low 3 buckle boots now. So a lot of great, even beloved gear is going for sale. I sincerely hope that the next owners are local kids or ski bums who will love it as much as I did.
