skate ski (instructing) 1:00:00 [3] 5.0 km (12:00 / km)

Good balance session with Sonya and then the blue plus flat 500.
10 AM

classic ski (lesson) 2:00:00 [3] 4.0 mi (30:00 / mi)

Classic lesson with four adults who were lovely and the full novice went off and did the red trail!
Then I had a group of 5 employees of an engineering firm in Toronto. Each from a different country with a different first language and acccent:
Meha'ran, Hassam, Hyunmn, a tiny woman named Jin-mee, and big Daniel from Austria. They were hilarious geniuses who were curious about why one of their colleagues was always so happy on Mondays. He tried to describe xc skiing and finally just brought them all up to Highlands to try it for themselves. They were having a great time but it wasn't easy for them.
12 PM

classic ski (Highlands) 1:45:00 [3] 16.0 km (6:34 / km)

Full red, plus, with a layer of fresh snow :)

skate ski (ofsaa) 30:00 [3] 5.0 km (6:00 / km)

Warm up ski with the girls relay team out on the front fields. The corduroy was like butter and the sun was shining in a cloudless sky. Absolutely gorgeous. The kind of winter day a skier lives for! It could not have been a better race day. My girls rocked the relay and moved from 11th overall to finish 6th in the province. Best-ever for Humberview:).
4 PM

skate ski (Highlands) 45:00 [3] 10.0 km (4:30 / km)

Had to get out after the kids left it was just too beautiful a day not to go for a ski. Angus, Susie and I bombed around the boys race course from yesterday in the late afternoon sunshine with smiles on our faces, even though I was dying trying to keep up with them. Finished in time to clean up and meet many of the volunteers and ofsaa crew at Mylar and Loreta's for a fun dinner. Sucha great couple of days.

skate ski (ofsaa) 3:00:00 [3] 12.0 km (15:00 / km)

Spectacular weather day at Highlands. Cold, crisp -26 at sunrise but the sun warmed things a bit and by mid-morning it was -10 and the squeak was gone out of the snow. The conditions were excellent for racing. Kids did well and it was a great day.

skate ski (Highlands) 1:20:00 [3] 12.0 km (6:40 / km)

More snow again today which is great for ofsaa tomorrow. It snowed all day so it was slow but soft and fluffy. Pre-skied the various courses with the teams.

classic ski (park) 1:00:00 [3]

Beautiful day today. Calm. Made it home this morning to re-pack for ofsaa. I went for a toodle through the park on my crowns but it was pretty hard and crusty in spots, icy, then drifted in other places. Nice to be out in sunshine though.

Monday Feb 25 #


Stranded in Duntroon all day and night. Snow came in sideways. Every road in Dufferin County was shut down. Wellington County was closed. Couldn't get to Stayner. No go on 124. So we worked all day at Highlands getting ofsaa stuff ready even though it was closed for the day too. It was truly a blizzard.

skate ski (Highlands) 1:20:00 [3] 16.0 km (5:00 / km)

Big change from yesterday! Freezing rain overnight, then pouring rain this morning. Sat in the chalet thinking maybe I'd just read today but the sun came out :). Connie O, Ariana, Simon and I did a very pleasant spring-like skate. It was very warm with the sun and the snow got slower but it was beautiful. We hit the rainless window perfectly. The sky was blue, there was no wind for about an hour and a half and then the clouds closed in and it started to rain again. Snow by the dinner hour and howling winds.
