Update: We have a winner! I’ve already received a confirmation email from jeff. Yes, that Jeff. Tracksetter Jeff is the winner of the Home Waxing Setup. I couldn’t believe it when Barbara pulled the winning entry today. You might remember our previous contest was won by Tracksetter Jody. If you are a tracksetter, go buy a lottery ticket! (P.S. If you’re skiing the Birkie, keep an eye on the Groomer’s Reports).
In my quest to find an independent third party to make the draw for the Home waxing set-up from Lifesport contest I headed to the Canmore Nordic Centre this afternoon.
Although the temperature was just as cold as yesterday at -20°C, there was no wind whatsoever so it felt nicer. The snow temperature was also -20.
Barbara, visiting from Ontario, made the draw in the comfort of the daylodge. I’m just waiting for a confirmation email before I announce the lucky winner’s name.
I skied out on the Banff loop, onto Banff trail, then onto Silvertip to the end of the grooming. It was the first time I had been to the extreme west end of the trail system since the strong winds of three weeks ago. I was amazed at how many trees had been cleared from the trails out there. There is still quite a bit of debris on the trails but with hard wax, nothing was much of a problem. If you start skiing at the daylodge, you can do about 4K until you hit the debris. It starts near the junction with Grey wolf.
