Brrr.  What's with this cold snap?  Coldest its been in a decade?  The Gatineau Loppet isn't for another month! 

It can be hard to get in good ski training when it's this cold, worse yet it could even be dangerous.  You might consider doing some shorter easier skis combined with some indoor training.  Intensity?  Be very careful breathing in that cold air, more than one good skier has been ruined by deeply inhaling air colder than -20C! 

You might also spend more time caring for your skis; getting them stone ground, waxing them and generally taking care of your gear.  You might also spend some time this weekend watching World Cup XC Skiing, and more time reading skiing website!  With that in mind may we suggest the following articles.

Lets hope the cold turns to chilly (not too warm!) and the snow speeds up next week..
