Its THAT time of year...

Ski season is in the air. 

The leaves are mostly off the trees, we meet at Penguin every Thursday morning at 7:30am, and there is a huge increase in emails about trip planning, uniform ordering, ski picking and stone grinding.

People are skiing in Canmore, it was snowing last weekend in Quebec, and the Gatineau Park parkway is going to be "closed for the season" in less than a week.

Rollerski time trials are on the schedule for three of the next four weekends, our Montmorency on snow training camp is in less than a month and we are wearing tights when we train.

The webcam snow-watch is starting, Christmas holidays are being organized and we are starting to think about getting the rust-proofing done on the car. 

Christmas is coming...

We are all getting excited about the ski season!

First snow...should be soon!
