Me, in my pre-icicle form


Given that today was my last opportunity to get a ski in before the craziness of the holidays, I didn’t want to give up the chance. I waited a bit until it warmed up and was drawn to West Bragg Creek by the promise of new grooming in the past few days. I started off at about 1:30, and my car said -27. There were four other cars in the parking lot and although I saw two skiers early on, I didn’t see anybody else all the way around Moose Loop until I got back to the car and two other skiers were finishing their ski as well. As promised, the tracks were lovely although the snow was quite slow under my fishscales, unsurprisingly. When I got back to the car at 3:00 it said -22, although the wind in my face on the way back made it feel colder. Fingers crossed for some warmer weather along with the holiday cooking and baking…happy holidays everyone!
