XC-skiing at the Frisco Nordic Center

I just got back from seeing if I could remember how to cross-country ski. I do remember how, however, I’m just too out of shape to do it very well anymore. BBQ is the devil’s own invention.

I headed out to the Frisco Nordic Center between Frisco and Breckenridge. It’s a great facility; trails were well-groomed and plentiful, busy but not crowded.

The rental equipment they gave me ($20 for the day) was better than the stuff I raced on in high school.

My only word of warning to anyone considering the trip – the altitude change will kick your ass. I’ve been getting winded just going up and down the stairs.
