Sprucewoods ski - January 23
As snow mobiles had ruined both the Yellow Quill trails and the Epinette trail - I decided that the Seton trails would be our best bet. Driving to the trail head, I registered -1 to +4 C....what were we in for? Fred and Jackie, Judy, Janine and my-self (plus our 3 canine friends) decided to find out! In fact, it really wasn't as bad as I had thought. Judy actually reported her best waxing day so far this season! I've never skied in the rain - but I guess there's a first for everything. We were then pelted by ice pellets, then some sleet, and then a little snow! We managed 10 km, with a pit stop half way through for hot chocolate and cookies. As we were leaving, a large group of adults and kids arrived for some tobogganing. I'm hopping the ski trail is still in tact....
Thanks to everyone who make it an enjoyable afternoon.
