Yesterday, I broke out the skis for the first time and did about a mile around Horner Park:

Today, due to the snowstorm I got to work from home, so as soon as 5 pm rolled around I headed out the door to enjoy the fresh powder:

The snow was fresh and deep, so it was much slower going than yesterday. It was also a better workout.
Based on years past, most of the skiable snow will be gone after the first week of March and temps will start to soar once again until November. So, if you have access to get out and have fun in the snow, give it a whirl. There are only three to four weeks left!
