I've decided that when the snow is new and soft, I will now go classic skiing and complain about it, instead of previously going skate skiing on crappy trails and complaining about it. Same amount of complaining really, but it seems to hurt me less.
If you classic skied and dragged a tire, the next time you went thru you could skate (use a big tire).
Considering the length of skis I imagine biggins requires, not just a big tire, but a really biggins tire.
If only you knew someone with a Bombi...
