Winter has come late this year. We were waiting the first snow till the end of November. Before that we wore a light jackets and shoes what was unusual for the this season. November was mentioned in the news as an unusually warm in this year.
Then in December we had more snow - it was falling during four days and for this days we have got a month quote of precipitations. That was a trouble for Novosibirsk services to clean the roads and streets and we have got a terrible traffic for a couple of days.
So, we had a snow and were happy to start our skiing weekends. The weather allowed us to feel ourselves very comfortable and temperature was not so low as usual. In December we had temperature around zero and that was very good for skiing.
This year we bought all necessary equipment for Zhanna too (last year only me and Lyuba were skiing) and now our small family can often be met in the closest forest or at the skiing base (Tulski or Tulsky skiing base).
