Skinned about a mile from our yard via trails to a gravel quarry. The north side is evenly pitched, 300' long and was pretty clean of brush and obstacles 2 years ago but has been neglected since. Quite a few small bushes, tufts of grass, and a few erosion channels. 12" of semi-dense snow kept me floating so took 9 runs before skiing home. Snowed a couple inches overnight so one more attempt may be in order before warming hits.
