Cross Country Skiing at Mountain Trails in the Catskills

The weather forecast said the temperatures are going to rise after tomorrow. With that in mind I planned another X-country skiing outing to the Catskill Mountains. My previous session in Frost Valley did not work out that well with only flat trails and no real tracks, so I did some more research and found another X-country site in the Catskills, Mountain Trails Cross Country Ski Center in Tannersville. Their website gave me a pretty professional impression: core business, ski rental, trails groomed on former logging trails, 35 kilometers of trails.
Yesterday it took me almost an hour to find a parking spot on Manhattan because I did not want to spoil time today with getting the car driving back to my apartment, getting the skis and back again.
After some skiing on the "easy" and "more difficult" trails I headed for the black "Experts Only" trail. I would certainly not call myself an expert but even this trail was very easily to manage. I suppose the X-country trails in Norway are just a bit more challenging. But, I had a great day.
