First flight on skis

Well I finally was able to fly the Avid on skis today.  Must be the second earliest date in the last 15 years or so.  2 years ago, I flew on 11/20.  Anyway, it was nice, although a bit bumpy.  First picture is looking out the bottom of the door at the ski, with a frozen lake underneath me.   JImChuk

We had about 3-4" yesterday on the runway, and got a couple more last night.  I would have been ok on wheels yet, but we had more snow a week ago when I put the skis on, and then we got a day that hit almost 40 and some of the snow went.  JImChuk

Hey Jim,  Quit hogging all the snow down there.  Still waiting for some real snow up here.

Glad you're out having fun in it!

We had about 3 or 4 more inches today.  Supposed to be light winds tomorrow and about 30.  To bad I'm driving south tomorrow for a bit cause I'll miss a great day of flying.  JImChuk
