More cross country skiing

Two more perfect cross country skiing sessions. The first with perfect weather and the second with perfect snow. A road ride squeezed in the middle.

Ski tour Feldberg from Stollenbach Huette

The first ski tour of the season. Jakob, Leonie, Walraud, and I headed up to Stollenbach Hütte and did a ski tour up onto Feldberg. The weather was a bit marginal and freezing at the top but still it was good to get out and remind myself how rubbish I am at skiing.

Cross country skiing at Schauinsland

Die Saison hat begonnen…

A beautiful day in Freiburg. The nasty misty grey had gone. Snow had fallen in the hills and Jakob, Nadine, and I headed up to the Schauinsland cross country skiing trail and tried out our langlaufen legs. The snow wasn’t too bad for the first day of the season and Jakob and I puffed our way around on skates while Nadine cruised around behind us on classics.
