skate ski (Highlands) 1:45:00 [3] 19.0 km (5:32 / km)

The snow and grooming are still damn good. Chanse just tills in the thin layer of ice from overnight freezing rain and it's like Italian ice cream out there - a bit of iciness but creamy smooth. Such great glide.
After a quick loop of Teal's Tango I met et up with my old friend Hunt-man, as well as Mrs. Huet and Deb. They dropped us eventually since he is not a regular skier and has vintage retro gear so they were definitely a bit too fit and fast for him. We had a really nice ski and catch up though.
2 PM

skate ski (Highlands) 1:40:00 [3] 21.0 km (4:46 / km)

It was too nice not to go back out. Happily glided around for another lap and a half. It may be one of the last skis but it's hard to tell from the premier's announcement yesterday. Too vague and wimpy.

skate ski (Highlands) 1:15:00 [3] 13.0 km (5:46 / km)

Goose and I skated while Susie and Jenn classic skied - and it was just about the right pace for us today. Feeling pretty good after yesterday's long ski, but not a lot of pop. Skied the works and chatted happily. Conditions were exquisite. A bit of freezing rain overnight meant Chanse tilled it in with the snow and it was buttery corduroy and easy gliding:). He is an artiste with the grooming.

classic ski (Highlands) 3:30:00 [3] 35.0 km (6:00 / km)

Goose announced this morning that he was doing a distance day. Spurred on by some other skiers who had big ski days this weekend he wanted to do 50 classic. We should have eaten more breakfast. I wasn't really prepared or psyched up for that but the snow is fantastic still and the track was pristine and hard. Awesome classic skiing - or skate. Off I went at my pace and my wax was the bomb! I felt great. Did about 30 before I started getting really hungry. Goose had long since dropped me and he finished 50 classic. I had to get some food. Then I switched to skate. Both were excellent today:)
2 PM

skate ski (Highlands) 1:15:00 [3] 15.0 km (5:00 / km)

Feeling pretty good but tired after classic this morning. Skated the green loop with the stadium and racer out x4 to avoid big climbs and then skied Teal's Tangos x 3 in a bit of a trance. It was lovely easy gliding again. Hopefully we get to keep skiing at Highlands. Fingers crossed.

skate ski (Highlands) 1:00:00 [3] 12.0 km (5:00 / km)

Skied after work but not a full sweep just an easy skate working on dbl pole and one-skate. The snow was amazing again today. Fast easy skating. We have been so lucky with weather and snow:)

skate ski (Highlands) 1:50:00 [3] 22.0 km (5:00 / km)

What a March break-looking day! The sun was shining, the evestroughs were dripping, and everyone was smiling:). Another steady, busy day at Highlands. I went out at the end of the day to shoo people off the trails and sweep. Did the whole course in reverse and felt awesome. The temps were dropping and it just got faster.

snowshoeing (escarpment) 1:00:00 [3]

Slow but stunning snowshoe hike out the door over the field and along the stream then up the escarpment into the woods and down. So much blue sky, blue bay, bright sunshine. SO pretty.
2 PM

classic ski (Castle Glen) 1:30:00 [3] 8.5 km (10:35 / km)

Goose and I parked at the Miller house and went for an exploratory ski around The Lake of the Clouds, some off trail in the bush, some on walking/snowshoe trail, some on kicked in trail, some on the lake and it was gorgeous up there. The sun was shining, the snow was sparkling and the skis were sliding. We are soooo lucky!

classic ski (Highlands) 1:30:00 [3] 17.5 km (5:09 / km)

The day dawned bright and just got clearer and bluer. A beauty:)
Goose and I met up with the Thurs. ladies and we chose to classic because it was relatively "cold" at -5. The dusting of snow last night took the glaze off the tracks and they were splendid. We had such a nice ski in the sunshine. Couldn't help but smile the whole time.
