Saturday Mar 16 #

11 AM

Skate ski 2:30:00 [3] 31.5 km (4:46 / km) +850m 4:12 / km

Ski all the trails poker ski - though to get the maximum number of cards the shortest route was likely about 15km. I thought it was a good excuse to actually ski all the trails... not the fastest snow conditions to do it as very slow wherever the sun had hit the trails. Still a very nice ski and satisfying to ski everything.

Classic ski 55:00 [2] 10.0 km (5:30 / km) +200m 5:00 / km

Quick evening ski with Courtney and Milo. Condition were a little sticky.

Wednesday Mar 13 #

Skate ski 2:00:00 [2] 27.0 km (4:27 / km) +625m 3:59 / km

A few days can make a huge difference - excellent conditions today for skate skiing. Only complaint could be a few spots softening as the sun hit them but overall some of the best conditions of the year. Bluebird day as well...

Dog loop twice without poles and then slow and steady for another 18km.

Backcountry skiing (100eight) 5:00:00 [3] 16.0 km (18:45 / km) +1775m 12:04 / km

St Cyr creek with Travis and Stuart. About 20-25cm of fresh snow but warming up today so the new snow was getting a bit heavier. I'd never been up this drainage so keen to check out a new zone. It is a bit of a walk up the broad ridge to get to the main skiing zone. Lots of nice mature forest and big trees. The north facing glades are really nice - too bad they weren't closer to the road (or perhaps that is a good thing a keeps some people away). Second run was better as I figured out the proper balance for the snow which was quite deep but tricky at times due to the lighter layer underneath. Two runs in the main glades then back via the uptrack trees. This was fine - would be more fun with settled snow. Conditions got a little heavy near the bottom.

Skate ski 1:00:00 intensity: (35:00 @1) + (25:00 @4) 12.0 km (5:00 / km) +220m 4:35 / km

Had plans to do a long skate ski today but the snowstorm started earlier than forecast. Instead I did some threshold work on the dog loop. 6 x 3.5 minute at threshold with 1.5 minute rest. Took a longer break after 3 sets. About 10cm of fresh snow on the track but skied better than expected as not too wet and heavy. Not many other people out braving the storm... dog was suitably tired out afterwards as this is the longest he has skied. Seemed to do fine for energy while we were skiing though.

8 AM

Backcountry skiing (Roamr) 4:00:00 [2] 14.0 km (17:09 / km) +1600m 10:55 / km

Skiing at MacPherson with Stuart, JM and Angela. Headed up to the Womb via the Fingers. Was interested to check out the amount of tracks at the Fingers - a lot of them but still space to find some fresh turns. The track up to the notch was tricky in spots but I've seen worse. I felt quite good today - the lighter skis make a difference but I've also been doing a lot of ski touring. Was reflecting recently that I think late winter is usually my fittest time of year. The womb skied fine - lots of tracks at the top so headed left and climbed the short bit to the other notch. Pretty good snow for the most part. We skied far left and found the exit through the cliffs. Back home by 2 pm.
