The new snow seems to have motivated a number of skiers to take advantage of these good conditions because the CNC was a busy place today.
Peter, Nancy and I were on the trail by 10:30 am. The tracks were mostly icy but I managed to ski 15K on my waxable skis. In places where the tracks offered no grip, I stepped into the skating lane and managed pretty well. If I had to guess, I’d say that 75% of today’s skiers were skating.
Erin was on her new Fischer waxless skis and was having success, and Arlene, who I talked to as we were coasting back into the daylodge, used klister. She said it worked well until most of it wore off.
Erin, I hope you’ll leave a comment, so I know if I spelled your name correctly! I forgot to ask.
Always nice to hear the friendly greetings when I’m on the trails. I wasn’t wearing my trademark toque today, but still a number of skiers said “hi, are you SkierBob?” Erin decided to go skiing today after reading my blog post early this morning.
Having my ski trip update posted by 2 pm must be some kind of a record!
