Leprechan Ski at C.N.C

To recover from Saturday's hang-over, and prep for the night's drinking, we'll head off in the afternoon for a short (2-3 hr) cross country ski around the Canmore Nordic Center. All skills welcome - beginners to experienced. Dress in green to avoid pinching. Trail fees are $10, and skis can be rented on site. We'll choose a collection of trails based on interest.

Note: Location may change, or event may be cancelled depending upon the conditions.

    Things are looking pretty decent for tomorrow - cooler temps (high of -7oC, though it may feel colder) so dress warm. They're expecting 10 - 15cm overnight, so unless it continues through the day, the roads should be cleared by the time we head out. See you all at 1:30pm tomorrow!
