-Skiers on the new trail which opened today at Frozen Thunder-
Another 500 metres of track opened today at the incredible Frozen Thunder ski trail at the Canmore Nordic Centre.
I didn’t ski, but I stopped in to get some photos, and while there, Ember volunteered to ski the entire trail with my GPS. The main loop is 1.7K, with another 170 metres through the biathlon range for a total of 1.87K.
Around noon, the conditions looked absolutely fantastic with a firm base for skaters and an excellent set of tracks for classic skiers. The one classic skier I talked with was using klister. She said it was performing well, but was wearing off quickly, and suggested that using a base binder would be a good idea.
Frozen Thunder races are occurring on Oct 28, Nov 1 and 3. Read the race notice. If you’re not racing, they’re fun to watch as a spectator with excellent views of the course and the racers.
Frozen Thunder will be open for public use after 12:00 noon on weekdays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. A day pass or “Early Season Pass” is required to ski Frozen Thunder prior to November 19.
Ember and Emma are in the first photo in the gallery below. Exactly two years ago, they were featured on this blog with this photo.
