Description

During the deep snow I wore skis. At first the long wooden runners bothered me. But gradually, I became accustomed to them and could travel much faster than I could without them. It is much like skating save that the feet always point straight ahead. It was such fun to slide over the huge drifts, sinking only an inch or so, when, if I'd been without the skis, I'd have gone in over my knees.
