Yukon Report: Early Summer

 With a significant portion of the XC Ottawa team currently residing in Whitehorse (current members Lee, Logan, Nansen and alumni Colin) we have been getting some good training and adventuring in. With nearly 20 hours of daylight it has been easy to get out after work and out for long sessions on the weekend.

 So far we’ve done the following activities:

· Skiing

· Snowshoeing

· Running

· Hiking

· Canoeing

· Kayaking

· Slacklining

· Orienteering

· Roller Skiing

· Mountain Biking

· Road Biking

 With all of these great activities all of us have had a great spring and early summer of training up here. If anyone is coming up North this summer and looking for some adventure be sure to let one of us know!

 Here are some pictures
