Completely skunked for skiable snow this past winter, I decided to get some roller skis. These came from Nordic Skater in Norwich, VT and have inflatable tires and aluminum frame. Six inch wheels are made for gravel roads though in my first trial on the driveway, the gravel was too soft for easy forward progress. Until gravel roads firm up I decided to try them on pavement and there they feel remarkably similar to snow skis. This is going to be a great way to get a workout even in the winter if there is no snow.
