9 AM

classic ski (Highlands) 1:45:00 [3] 10.0 km (10:30 / km)

Coacged the O'cup kids this morning with Connie. It was a klister day but it sure worked. Fast skiing. Not me. The kids.

5 PM

skate ski (Highlands) 50:00 [3] 10.0 km (5:00 / km)

Got up to Highlands late but it was still light. Easy skate. Snow was sort of soft with bits of ice from the trees so sort of fast . Got faster as the rain started to hit it and glaze.

classic ski (Arrowhead) 30:00 [3] 5.0 km (6:00 / km)

Steve took a 1/2 day to ski with Mrs. Huet and ski the loppet course again. We cruised through the flat first section and I feel like a I know where I'm going now.
10 AM

classic ski tempo (Arrowhead) 25:00 [3] 5.0 mi (5:00 / mi)

I chose to do a race pace piece through the second section which has several climbs in it. Not super steep but I had to work to stay in the track and only stepped out once. I worked pretty hard.

skate ski (Arrowhead) 40:00 [3] 6.0 km (6:40 / km)

The fresh grooming was just too tantalizing. I changed into skate stuff so I could enjoy the delicious glide. It was gorgeous. Met up with Mrs. Huet and Steve and worked on some downhill turns for a bit but mostly just cruised on clean corduroy. Didn't want to leave but all good things must come to an end. We'll be back this weekend:).

10 AM

classic ski (lessons) 2:00:00 [3] 6.0 km (20:00 / km)

Taught classic skiing a really nice group of largely retired women who were experienced skiers. Conditions were superb as was the windless relatively warm day. Awesome tracks. So fun. With a great lunch and presentation by an adventurous world traveller.
2 PM

classic ski (teaching) 1:00:00 [3] 6.0 km (10:00 / km)

Part of our instructor duties was to "lead" a group on the trails. Since most of the ladies were from Huntsville and ski at Arrowhead practically daily we were a little irrelevant but it was a pleasant chatty ski around the lake.
3 PM

classic ski (pre-ski) 1:00:00 [3] 10.0 km (6:00 / km)

After the ladies' was done mrs. Huet and I took a map and did another pre-ski of the first 2 sections of the loppet so we'd have a better idea of the course which is rather winding and a bit confusing. Lots of stops to ensure we were going the right way. Great conditions:)

3 PM

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

Drove up to Huntsville with Mrs. Huet in time for an afternoon ski with Steve who guided us through their new loppet course for Sunday. We skated the course on beautiful buttery, nicely groomed snow and it was still light when we finished.

strength (tree/snow removal) 2:45:00 [3]

A brilliantly beautiful day. Bright blue sky and sunshine sparkling off the glassy ice that is still coating the trees up on the escarpment. It's just dazzling.
Goose and I helped Chanse on the trail this morning pruning overhanging, drooping trees and branches and then moving the branches and raking. Manual labour - I even wore big quilted winter overalls for the first time. Looked like areal local.
When I got home our driveway was knee deep with snow and had a chunky crusty ridge the snow plough left at the end of the driveway. And Tman was arriving later. So I shovelled for 45 minutes. Enough to make my forearms, wrist sand thumbs really sore.

8 AM

skate ski (Highlands) 40:00 [3] 5.0 km (8:00 / km)

Holy snow! There was a lot out there first thing and branches hanging and broken so Chanse was having a helluva time crashing through the overhanging ice-snow heavy stuff. He had to do everything twice so he didn't even finish grooming till 11!!
I was trying to get up to the back orange with goodies for a World Snow Day event and could barely move in the knee deep snow since it still wasn't groomed. That was a workout.

classic ski (lessons) 4:00:00 [3]

4 lessons in a row. Of course Classic, skate, classic, skate so I had to keep switching boots. Could hardly tell if the trails had been groomed because the snow just kept coming. But it was fun and beautiful in snow globe out there again today. Perfect for World Snow Day:)
1 PM

classic ski (Highlands) 45:00 [3] 7.0 km (6:26 / km)

Had enough energy for a short classic loop with Connie and Dave O. It was spectacular. So much gorgeous snow.
