Snow Making and Football

It was cold enough to make snow here in Canmore, Alberta today!

This morning’s workout was a 2.5 hour classic ski. The loop was crowded and we did a lot of laps.

There were some near collisions (and some actual collisions) on the trail. After yesterday’s (and today’s) snow, the mountains around Canmore are¬†gorgeous.

After the ski Kris Freeman was enjoying the sun:

This afternoon and evening I hug out with the Canadians (an assortment of current and former skiers) watching football and eating delicious food. I also tried out their tradition of overheating in the sauna then taking a dip in the glacial river with a 5 minute barefoot walk in the snow between the two. It was quite the experience, and I’m glad I tried it. It was a fun ¬†day!
