Canmore Report 2
By:  Edward McCarthy   (2005/12/03)


We've finally gotten to ski in Canmore! After a Thursday morning highly reminiscent of the National Championships held here in 2002 spent sitting inside waiting for the temperature to climb an appreciable amount above absolute zero we got the word that the Canmore Nordic Centre had finally been groomed. Amazingly, less than one week of snowmaking changed the trails at the Nordic Centre from completely bare to, well, completely skiable. Thursday afternoon and Friday morning we've been out skiing both the new sprint course and 2.5km loop we'll be racing on this weekend. The manmade snow on the course is hard as a rock, making for a fast and solid track. It should be a fun weekend of racing!

Here are a few pictures...
