Transformation of snow crystals. I went out this morning, it felt like skiing on sand. It has been pretty cold, so the snow is transformed to powder. It was difficult to get a good grip on the uphills. I was on BC gear and had backpack on, moving in a reasonable pace when I saw a "serious skier" training on the Trabelia Rundt. He kept looking back and checking me coming, because he was having so much trouble with the grip. It looked strange seeing him ahead of me for more than 4kms, but I have to say I felt great :).
Weather has changed a bit, minus 8 Celsius, grey and overcast, no snow yet.
