K-P night patrol
As with nighttime mountain biking, the woods take on a whole new look on a nighttime ski tour. I use the same high-powered headlamp that I ride with, so there’s more than enough light to ski by.
This past weekend’s storm brought a foot of perfect snow for skiing: cold, dry powder with just enough density to keep your skis floating. With snow like this, you can ski just about anywhere in my local woods, the Kalabus-Perry parcel of Saratoga County forestland.
You want conditions like this to last all winter. Unfortunately it looks like we'll have a setback with this weekend's weather. If there's one thing any Eastern skier knows: ski hard when the snow is good, even if it's just for an hour or two at 10pm.
