Skied the Sand Dunes

image

I climbed up to the top, carrying my skis and a beer. Rested for a minute, slammed that cold wet goodness in a can, then skied down. The first impression of the slope was misleading. It seems so steep. Point sideways. Nothing, Point a little farther downhill. Nothing. Turns out sand is not fast like snow. You have to point your skis straight down. Then leisurely slide along and enjoy the slow ride. I was just pleased at the accomplishment of climbing up there, carrying the skis which seemed heavier each time. 4 times in a row that day!
