Some cross country skiing in West Yorkshire, around a tree plantation
At the time just below freezing, with a good thick layer of firm snow, and a dusting of fresh snow. Although the tracks had not been prepared it was easy enough to follow previous skiers.
After 3 weeks of snow and ice, I thought there's be enough up in the hills to justify a trip up to Another World. After at least a week of predominantly sub sero weather, the temperature had risen, and a thaw had started by the timr I was out.
The snow was still thick and hadn't melted, but I did notice it started to feel heavier and wetter than when I was doing downhill skiing that morning.
