classic ski (Highlands) 5:00:00 [3] 48.0 km (6:15 / km)

Cold crisp clear morning - at -20!! Gorgeous sky. Met up with the speedy ladies Susie S. , Connie O, Sue U., and Martha W. - all good skiers who love classic and it was a classic, classic day. Blue wax for sure:)
Sue has only one speed and it's way too fast for me, but the other ladies can keep up - for a while. She was killing me but luckily she never glide waxes so I was able to catch up on the downhills as my skis were way faster. Also, luckily for the rest of us Sue only ever skis for 1 1/2 hours, pretty much to the minute, so we were able to go at a much more sane pace once Sue left.
After almost 3 hours the others had to leave, but I stayed out in the sunshine and warmer conditions - my skis were great. I needed more food and my water bottle froze so I need to figure that out before the marathon but otherwise I felt good and my wax was great and held up. (k18 base binder, VR40, with VR30 on top)

classic ski (Highlands) 3:35:00 [3] 35.0 km (6:09 / km)

SUCH A GORGEOUS DAY!! Sunshine, blue skies and brisk temps. Clear and cold - I love it:). And LOTS of fresh snow at Highlands. Soft fluffy stuff on top of all that ice. So nice. No klister base necessary. Goose, the Girl and I skied on hard wax (VR40) and it was awesome. Easy to get kick today but we were also gliding fine. You had to keep moving though or you got pretty chilled in short order. I think it was about -13 but no wind. Just a spectacular winter day!

classic ski (teaching) 1:30:00 [3] 8.0 km (11:15 / km)

Drove from nothing in Bolton through whiteouts in Everett and up to Creemore, to winter wonderland at Highlands! Beautiful fluffy stuff:)
Goose and I were instructing school groups this morning and skied with them.
1 PM

classic ski (Highlands) 1:35:00 [3] 15.0 km (6:20 / km)

Once the lessons were done Goose and I skied a big loop with Dave O. as the snow kept coming. It was sooo nice. Pretty nippy north wind though when we came out to open spots.

Wednesday Jan 9 #

10 AM

classic ski (Highlands) 2:55:00 [3] 26.0 km (6:44 / km)

Rain, freezing rain, rain around home made it hard to believe it would be skiable at Highlands but they are a little island high above the rest so after the rain, freezing rain they got snow:). The Girl and I had the place almost to ourselves and skied steadily and happily on nice fresh snow - on a hard ice base.
Vauhti base binder, some roll on K-base, then violet multi-grade. It stayed on and worked fine.

Tuesday Jan 8 #

10 AM

canoeing (Humber) 1:00:00 [3]

No snow - might as well paddle. Goose and I paddled from home to the burnt down bridge. There were lots of ice floes and shelves along the banks but no problem getting down. Saw a mink, an large heron, ducks and a huge hawk.

Monday Jan 7 #

3 PM

trail Run (school practice) 1:15:00 [3] 8.0 km (9:23 / km)

Raw, grey, blustery day. Jogged up to school to meet with the ski team then we did a slow trail run in Bolton Camp with some hill repeats. Fun.
