Frozen Thunder – the saga continues

Olympian George Grey was skating on Frozen Thunder today. Oct 18, 2010

Frozen thunder was in great shape this morning but it may have been more accurate to call it semi-frozen at 2 pm. Still good and lots of fun, though. I skied on classic skis with klister(Start universal) and it worked well. Cheryl had waxless classic skis, had pretty good grip and was thrilled to be out skiing again.

Groomed for classic and skating, Frozen Thunder is a 720m loop with an option to extend it to 1K. Oct 18, 2010

It was nice to see George Grey and tell him how much we enjoyed watching him and his teammates in the Olympics. If you recall, it was the best results ever for the men’s cross-country skiers.

Weather forecast is calling for some warm temperatures this week. Let’s hope it gets cold enough at night to enable the snow to be groomed and trackset.

George Grey, in a post-Olympics interview said, “It felt like what we did actually had meaning and was really felt by Canadians.  We race over seas all year and Canada doesn’t get to share our highs and lows like they did at the 2010 Olympics.   To have my career best (8th place) individual race in the 30km pursuit at the Olympics was such a good feeling.” Read more on George’s blog.
