An interesting ski, with glowing beech leaves and animal tracks.  Few skiers were out, presumably because of the damp weather and slow snow.  Their loss.

Sun, 03/26/2017 - 15:34

Fourth time I’ve seen a fox in the last month and friends have been spotting them as well.  I hadn’t seen them for a couple of years, so perhaps they are having a good year!

The final tally was 21.6 cm of snow – all sorts of monthly and daily records were broken.   It beats the 2-4 which were forecast.   And of course, ski conditions were awesome today!  This is trail 50 near P16.  I had extra time for photos while skating up the long first uphill, as the snow was softer and slower than usual – puff – I had many rest stops!

Kevin, on trail 50.   I always enjoy watching his beautiful classic technique – and notice the  trademark smile.  Kevin will never tire of skiing!

Pink Lake Trail – the forecast

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 16:32

Pink Lake Trail – the forecast completely missed this.  Instead of 2-4 cm we had at least 11 cm of wintery powder.   Great classic skiing, at least until midday, when things started to warm up.

A much needed “off” day

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 10:53

A much needed “off” day from skiing. It’s minus 15 today with brisk winds.  Where did Spring go?  This photo was taken mid afternoon a week ago, on trail 50 near Lac Philippe.

With such mild spring temperatures on Monday, I headed for Penguin Picnic area, thinking  it would be pleasant to  sit and enjoy the ambience.  Picnic tables were a bit difficult to find!

Mon, 03/20/2017 - 10:40

The track-setter seemed to have left some yucky, sooty stuff behind – seen on a stretch in the middle of  the north loop.  Bad news for hairy skis – dirty stuff, and very slow.  Best to stay out of these tracks.

After watching some inspiring World Cup skiing, we headed out here for the second ski of the day (such beautiful weather and conditions!)  Anyone recognize this waterfall? (Paul figured it out – trail 5 near Mine Road. )
