|Getting high in Helsinki|
It started snowing today, and by now the snow depth is about two inches. Not enough to ski the steep forested parts of the hill, but enough to slide through the walking path. The winds at the top were fierce, however.
Skiing here can be quite good if the conditions are right. Think one meter of powder on a good year (but we just had two, need to wait a couple of decades for the next ones).
Obviously our visit to Garbage Hill today was not that great skiing, but okay for an evening's outdoors exercise. Plus I needed to test my new camera.
I have some ideas for further trips near Helsinki that are perhaps more interesting. Contact me if you want to join.
