A group of dear friends and I decided to give cross country skiing a try. About 90 minutes from Coeur d’Alene, Mt. Spokane was an ideal location. Nordic trails were labelled for every level of difficulty, well-organized with a map and lodge, plus it was not crowded. Wahoo!
As an alpine skier in years past, I was surprised to find how much different this was. The skis are narrower, bowed upward, and more difficult to balance on. On the positive side, the shoes were very comfortable…especially compared to alpine ski boots!
Although we all enjoyed our lesson, and the experience, the consensus was a preference for snow shoeing. We’ll have to try it a couple more times to know for sure. It’s worth doing, though, there’s no doubt about that!
Stay tuned for pics!!
