My skis came today. They came to my neighbors house, two miles away. I put them on and started to ski home. It was all uphill so it was pretty slow going. Soon it was almost dark so I took them off, strapped them to my backpack and hurried home. The skis are really short and fat. They have skins glued to the bottom of them and metal edges. You don’t need boots; I wore my running shoes with them.
