Spring is a great time to break out the cross-country skis and hit the backcountry trails. There are a couple of things to keep in mind:
Where to ski
There are some classic trails and roads that provide great skiing, quiet surroundings and beautiful scenery. Almost any canyon on Hwy 26 going over Pine Creek Pass will provide miles of trail. Most of these have been "groomed' by snowmachines and make for some fun runs. Mike Spencer Canyon has miles of trails that are relatively flat.
Type of Skis
Most cross-country skis are now fish tail and waxless. For backcountry trails (typically not machine groomed) it would be worth the investment to get heavier duty bindings and boots. They provide a lot more stability and control for unpredictable conditions.
