    We had a great day out at the Nordic Centre. Even along the natural snow sections of the trail it was pretty good. The sun was out most of the time we were there, especially in the afternoon. The trails were a bit hard and icy in the morning but soften up by the midday

    Been looking at the forecast for Canmore and it looks to be getting as warm as here but by the weekend forecast to be around -3 with some flurries. I plan to bring both classic and skate skis with me, with classic in the morning and a bit of skate in the afternoon.
