Just returned from an overnight ski to Shadow Lake Lodge(will post an update on that tomorrow). That’s my excuse for being late with these reports…
First from Steve Riggs:
Sunday was a fabulous day on the ski trails in PLPP. We skied up Whiskyjack, across Lookout and down the steep side to Hydroline, stopping for a glorious sunny lunch at the top. Then, up to Elk Pass, along Tyrwhitt and down Whiskyjack to finish off a 22 km loop.
Conditions were perfect except for Whiskyjack which was skier-tracked and a bit choppy in spots on the descent. Pleasant temperatures not far below zero were most welcome after a chilly week in Calgary.
Update from World Masters in Vernon, BC from Blaine Penny:
What a day for Alberta and Canada at the WMC! Marg Fedyna of Edmonton, and fellow Team MitoCanada racer won the women’s 15 km classic in style. I saw Marg about 45 min before her race and chatted with her briefly. She was pumped to ski and excited it clouded over and that her skis were working well. 2 hours later she was a world champion!
There was a good crowd at the awards to watch Marg receive her medal and stand on top of the podium. A very proud moment for Marg, MitoCanada and her fellow Canadian’s.
Read a detailed race report from Marg(with photos): Mito suit has good energy
Tomorrow is the 10 km classic for our crew. Weather is looking great and going to be a fast, tough race. The top Canadians in tomorrow’s race will qualify for the relay team and get to race on Wednesday to represent Canada.
I’d like to extend a congratulations to Lyle Wilson for his two bronze medals in World Masters so far. Lyle is part owner of Nipika(dog-friendly) Mountain Resort near Radium.
