XC Skiing - Woods Hollow Preserve

We got a couple of inches of new snow overnight, to top off the greyish-brown icy crust that developed in last week's thaw. Holly only had a little time to spare, so we decided to try skiing at the Woods Hollow Preserve, near Ballston Spa. Conditions were fair to poor, despite the new coating of snow. This place gets a lot of walking and snowshoe traffic, and the trails were pretty rutted and icy under the new snow.

We managed to spend a little less than an hour on mostly pretty flat terrain, aside from one exciting downhill near the beginning and a bushwhack around another icy uphill. The skiing wasn't great, or even good, but we at least got out for some exercise on an otherwise very nice day.
