Back in Action

I had been out of XC - ski commission for a couple of weeks due to an unfortunate incident involving sliding backwards into a small ravine and ripping the front bindings out of my skis.  Fortunately, I was not very far from my car and was able to get things together enough to ski out.  The next unfortunate incident involved mis-drilling the binding holes for one of my rear bindings.

The fix was to drill a riser plate to both skis and mount the bindings onto the plates.  This worked well, but left me with a small, barely noticeable forward lift.

It was nice to be back on the snow this week since we got about 6" of new.  I also found a new (to me) trail that winds around the backside of Leadville and ends up overlooking the Sawatch Range and Turquoise Lake.
