Hey everyone! It’s winter and it’s time to start the race season. Our team has been in Canmore for 5 days now, testing new skis and getting accustom to the winter weather. This weekend we will be racing in the Alberta Cup as a low key race to start off the season before heading to Silverstar for the first NorAm. Tomorrow is a classic sprint and Sunday will be a mass start 10km skate race. Results should be posted on the zone 4 website (www.zone4.ca) so be sure to check them out. The weather has been cold here and Sunday’s high is supposed to be -20 degrees, so there is a good chance the race will be cancelled. On a positive note, it has been snowing all day in Canmore and the snow guns have been producing snow all week so the snow on the trails is plentiful.
We had the opportunity this week to drive to Lake Louise for a change in scenery. The temperature was freezing and we all wished we had brought classic skis rather than skate skis, however the deep blue skies and surrounding mountains made for some spectacular views that more than made up for the sluggish conditions. Below are some pictures from our ski at Lake Louise.
