I just got back from skiing around the Capitol Square. It's the Madison Winter Festival downtown, and you too can ski the Square this afternoon and Sunday. Check out what's happening at http://www.winter-fest.com/.
And I'm told by serious skiers (of which I am not one) that our Madison parks are groomed better than ever this year. You can learn more about where to ski on groomed trails in Madison by checking out http://www.cityofmadison.com/residents/Winter/activities/index.cfm.
But if you wax your skis don't use blue wax as I did today. It's a red wax day if there ever was one. Enjoy!
