Like a kid waiting for Christmas...

La Foret Montmorency - Home of the XC Ottawa first on snow training camp.† We have gone every year since 2001, except last year when there was no snow.† Unfortunately, it looks like this year we might have to postpone...although, maybe the snow gods will shine and all that rain will be snow!† We just have to be patient little kids and wait!

We are all checking the weather five times a day (in case the weather man has changed his mind) and making plans for travel.† We are digging out our skis, and stocking up with our favourite training camp snacks at the grocery store.† We are ready, all we need is snow!!

Here are some pictures from the 2004-2007...you can see why we look forward to going!†

Much more fun than rollerskiing.

Everyone looking happy.

Beautiful scenery at the turn-around.

Lots of food!† I hear that Sheila's son Evan wants to go even if it doesn't snow so that he can eat in the cafeteria.

Lots of time to work on technique.

Skiing right from the door.

Good times with teammates.

Loving the snow!

Let's hope for snow...
