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!
