I borrowed some langlauf skis from work and tried langlauf-ing with Frauke this afternoon. Having only tried this once before at the Waiouru Snow Farm in New Zealand I wasn’t fantastic. I tried skating skis. Using these skis is a bit like inline skating. Using the classic langlauf skis is more like walking. I didn’t fall over but was a little slow for Frauke the more experienced langlaufer, or should we say langlauferin?
Is there a better way to finish an afternoon of skiing than with an evening of climbing? Not generally. We went climbing with Frauke’s friends in the evening.
