White Stuff

I like me some white fluffy snowflakes, mostly because they're great for gliding on top of.  One of the considerations I had before moving to Canmore this year was the fact that winter generally comes earlier in Canmore, even if it's mostly man-made white stuff.  This year I was the third person to ski on Frozen Thunder when it opened October 13th.  For those that don't know, Frozen Thunder is a short loop (~1.7km) made from man-made snow stored over the summer months under sawdust.  It may get a  little old after doing laps upon laps, but I'll take the real thing over the skis with wheels any day.

The next skiing development was Lake Louise.  All natural snow.  10km one way.  One of the days I skied there it was absolutely perfect classic mid-winter conditions.  Medium packed track, blue skies, easy kick with colder temps, yet not so cold you were freezing.

With some wintery temperatures recently, the snow guns have been blasting at the Canmore Nordic Centre and now part of the World Cup course is open.  I suspect the entire course may be open by this weekend.

It's hard to believe I have been skiing for over a month already!  Last year I didn't get on the skinny boards and white stuff until December!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
