Dear Blog Readers,
So this week Brendan wanted to try cross country skiing. Did you know that it is referred to as XC Skiing. I didn’t. I also didn’t really mind if we didn’t try it!! We went to Capreol XC Ski as it was the cheapest option – $5 for the skis and $5 for the trail pass. We tried the 2 km trail and it was AWESOME! We will definitely go back. The club is run by volunteers and they were all hugely helpful; from getting the skis measured to advice on trails. We both found it to be quite a good work out – although our methods differed immensely. Brendan favoured the ‘two ski poles in the snow and pull yourself forward’ method, whereas I liked the ‘walking in the snow on two narrow strips of wood’ method. Who knows who is right?!?! There were a couple of minor downhills which were fun but we both decided the uphill on this small trail was quite enough – if it had been any steeper we probably would still be stood at the bottom now as the snow was very slippy yesterday (not just our amateur opinion).
Today we are visiting the Snow-Cross at Sudbury Downs. I believe this will be people on snow machines driving fast in circles. I will let you know how it goes.
Lots of love
