Skate ski 1:30:00 [3] 18.0 km (5:00 / km) +340m 4:34 / km

We took a short trip out of town to escape the rain - the Okanagan tends to be drier at this time of year. The last few weeks have been a tease for nordic skiing as the forecast looks promising but then not much snow at the nordic centres that are high enough to be open in November. Nickel Plate had great conditions two weeks ago and then lost snow so weren't planning to groom until Saturday. Several cm of snow last night meant that they suddenly changed plans and were open again... to add the cherry on top we drove through the valley cloud that socked Apex in and emerged into nice sunny weather above.

This was my first trip to Nickel Plate and was quite impressed. Snow conditions were pretty good with about 20km open. There were certainly some early season hazards and the conditions were slow but overall great skiing. Nice views across to Cathedral Provincial Park from Panorama ridge. Only a dozen or so cars in the parking lot.
