Ski 38:39  6.7 mi (5:46 / mi) +283m 5:06 / mi
So we stayed in Canmore. Got dinner and beers, then went to the bar in our cheap motel. Which was filled to the brim with Canadian skiers (mostly in the 18-22 range) since Canadian nationals finished yesterday in Canmore. Had a few drinks, made some friends, and went to bed later than planned.
Sunday was planned for gravity skiing at Lake Louise (not logged, but a total bluebird day, pretty good snow, and un-fucking-believable views) and I wanted to ski Canmore in the morning. I should have set an alarm but didn't and slept way in so I didn't get skiing until close to 10, and only skied 40 minutes. Just to whet my appetite. And Canmore is amazing. The skiing was perfect spring conditions, well-groomed but frozen, super fast. Uphills are legit, downhills are flying and the views are stunning.
I might go back tomorrow. Only an hour from Calgary proper. Calgary has been added to the list of places I'd live.
Ski 1:06:00  8.2 mi (8:03 / mi) +247m 7:22 / mi
Flew in to YYC, then up to the mountains for the weekend. Mel and I were going xc skiing, Phil wasn't. We got to the first option and it was kind of warm and slushy seeming (but goddamn, 60k of long trails in the mountains; mid-season would be amazing), so we drove up the road to the place that had been groomed overnight. Skiing was pretty good. It was snowing hard when we got there but let up, but the new snow kept things slow. Which was nice, since some of the curvy downhills kept me on my toes even given the snow.
Ski 51:36  6.4 mi (8:04 / mi) +201m 7:21 / mi
After a time around the 10k, grabbed a snack, and did another time around the 10k. Started off sunny with views, then started snowing, then finished sunny with views.
Ski 10:05  1.1 mi (9:10 / mi)
Cooling down back and forth in the stadium, waiting for our ride down a super washboarded dirt road, what fun!
Run hills 45:02  5.3 mi (8:30 / mi) +333m 7:07 / mi
NP fun. Mostly big hills, some small ones, went 45 minutes, then got cold on the ride home. Still kind of winter. Ankle felt okay, but was pretty lax on the downhills.
