Have been skate skiing on fields after getting farmers permission. The cold has turned the surface to one that you can stand on with your boots. Incredible skate skiing!!! After an hour of sun the boiler plate frost that acts as slick or brakes / sand has softened on the surface- would need at least 2 hours of sun for reasonable classic to be enjoyable. Found that all shaded parts were slippery or like sand.
