This is one of the best times of the year. Really. At what other time can you get in a jog, a bike ride, a snowbike ride, and a ski in one day? Some folks call this the “shoulder season”, and lament waiting until “bike season” starts. With a pair of skis, a snowbike and some running shoes, you can still have a full day of outdoor activity.
Remember, if you can get out early the ski trails and the woods will have a nice frozen crust from the cool night before. Skate skis are crazy-fast through hardwood areas off the trails. Get up with the first light and finish your ski before 11am or so.
Rick and Lorri’s dilemma: It is possible to snowbike anywhere you can crust ski. How to choose?
