On Saturday, a friend invited me to her son’s final Nordic race of the season, at Auburn Ski Club near Boreal Ridge, which is a resort on the summit of Interstate 80. Kids from all over and from all levels of fitness were competing. Families of every origin were there to cheer them on. The front runners were so fast one actually lapped the other kids! The ones who finished last inspired me the most.

    1. I wouldn’t say I enjoy the cold exactly, I dress for it! The kids have to go out and practice in bad weather though, but it’s different when you’re a kid. I used to do that all the time, then come inside and get warm. Now…I like sunny warm days the most, I have warm clothes, and I don’t have to go out or stay out unless I want to. But I don’t know, you Queenslanders probably wouldn’t like it no matter what! I’m not sure I’ve met a Queenslander skier, but there must be some.
