XC Skiing - Indian Meadows Park

The past few days have been brutally cold, below zero at night and barely double digits in the daytime. Today looked a little better, sunny and low teens, so we decided to get out for a short ski. With a more ambitious outing on tap for tomorrow, I didn't want to overdo, so we headed to Indian Meadows for a short flat ski around the perimeter.

Starting last week, this place has been getting "groomed". By that that they apparently mean "rolled". The trail around the outside of the park is now hard-packed and walkable, and is getting a lot of use in that mode. It could be really good for skate-skiing, but not so great for classic, with no tracks set. At any rate, we also went off on some ungroomed woods trails and spent about 35-40 minutes total, which was enough with a biting wind.
