December 2006. Novosibirsk. Snow, skiing.

December 2006. Novosibirsk. Snow, skiing.

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).


We were waiting for the snow for a long time in this year. Al last it came in November and its amount was huge. But we ad no the frost after the snow, so we could walk and go skiing with a great pleasure.

Lyuba decided to make a snowball and it was done in a few minutes.

The speed on the chute became faster with the snow and small frost on the next day.

Two days after we had even more snow and many trees in the forest were broken.

All trees and branches were covered with snow. And some branches were not strong enough to keep it.

The snow was good enought to sculpture a snowman. And Lyuba, with the help of Zhanna, created one snowman using an ashberry for the eyes and twigs for the ears and mouth.

The snowgirl was born from the snow!

Every weekend we visit the Alek Tulsky skiing lodge in Akademgorodok. In the last year (2005) my second cousin Taralenko Dmitry invited us to have a skiing. From that times we try to use every weeked for this. Dmitry likes to teach my girls to have right skiing. Zhanna and Lyuba fond of skiing now.
At the picture: we just arrived to the skiing lodge (named Alek Tulsky). Zhanna, Dmitry and Lyuba.

Before the long descending from the hill Dima shot ahead to see the situation. There could be many fallen skiers and children at the end of descending, so Dmitry went to check it.
