Late February. The snow is just starting to crust. Now its hard enough to keep me from sinking to my hips when I ski. The last couple of weeks have been a grunt - pushing submerged boards through the woods, a great workout. Now, though its still -20'C, the days are lengthening, the sun is warm and I can skim across the tops of the drifts. There's exhilarating pleasure in cruising the bush behind our log home north of Whitehorse.
