We finally have enough snow and cold for skiing. Wonderfull winter excercise!

While the chickpeas soak for tomorrows miso.

And the koji grows.

Great for skiing!

We’ve already been out skiing once, which is more than what I have done the last two years. And it’s a good thing I’m done with the digging for this season.

Finally a little snow and cold.

And I can get the fall digging done.

Hopefully we get more snow so I can start the ski season.

Wonderful for skiing. But I’ve had a hernia operation and will have to take it easy. No skiing this year unless it lasts until march. I’ll be ready for the garden anyway.

The last 3 weeks have been cold with a little snow. Just enough to ski every day. Now it’s getting warmer and yesterday we got quite a bit of new snow.



So out skiing again.



It might be the last time for this winter as the weather is supposed to warm up more. I hope not!

Yesterday we got a mini snowstorm – high winds and it snowed all day.

I was worried, but the dome didn’t blow away.

I got my skis out and tried skiing, but it’s not yet enough snow for good cross country skiing.

It’s supposed to snow all day today and a little tomorrow and then get cold, so I can hope to get some skiing in this year.

And it is wonderful when everything is white!

Fantastic weather for skiing.  

 
Not really enough snow yet, and very cold, but I got out my battered but favorite birch skis a few days ago and have been skiing the last three days.  

 
  

I’s been a great week for skiing until friday when it got sunny and my ski trails started melting. I got about halfway out, then the snow started sticking under the skis, giving me a good workout getting home. It is cold during the nights and sunny in the days, so for good skiing I have to get out early.

This beautiful sunny morning there was a very harsh cold wind blowing the loose snow into dunes, patterns and formations. It also fills up the ski trails so I have to make new ones.

I love the snow!

It has been snowing slightly for about 4 days straight and has accumulated to a quite a good amount. (I put a filter on the following pictures to get rid of the winter blue – I’m not sure…)

It’s colder now and the wet snow under has frozen. With 10 to 20 cm of new powdery snow it’s perfect for skiing.

Yesterday I skied into the woods but was a bit too tired after the all night Superbowl game (american rugby where I saw the Seattle Seahawks lose in the last seconds of the game).

Today was better. I went for long trip cross country.

Including the obligatory coffee break.

It has been warm and rainy, and the snow has been melting and refreezing. I discovered this morning that there was still enough snow for skiing and cold enough too.

Along with the deer (trying to get into the caged garden).

I’ve also started building the framework for the next garden shed.
