Feb 27 Meissner Beginner

Charlie Cornish led another Beginner tour at Meissner Feb. 27.  They had nicely groomed tracks and stuck to the green trails of Ponderosa and Tangent to avoid hills.  A lot of excellent basic knowledge was learned as the result of snow sticking to skis (clean ski base to remove dirt and apply liquid glide wax), ice build up in the NNN bindings (remove with a narrow tool like a plastic knife and try spraying boot bar and binding with silicone), and blocking the track when stopping as a group (step out of the track when stopped!).  But more importantly, several skiers were out for their first ski of the season or first ski in years!  Charlie's approach to leading left everyone with smiles, so he expects several "returns" in future skis!
