Apparently I am not quite the hardy winter person I thought I was before today. With the arrival of snow and cold I had put away my backyard slackline (which I bought after our family caught the bug at last OR) and turned to other activities.
Today the folks at Gibbon Slacklines were entertaining demo day visitors at Snowbasin (apparently I missed the snowshoe slackline traverse), and now I'm not sure why I ever thought slacklining was only a summertime activity. After all, falling on snow can be more forgiving than falling on hard ground, though I'm not sure about falling into a snow cave.
Check them out in this video. They make it look so easy (trust me, it isn't):
As we might say in Maine, slacklines are wicked fun, and completely addictive.
