Week #28 of 2017-18

Coming Up:

  • Skate Skiing this Week?
    • Greetings from Thunder Bay! Will Rickard, Sarah Hanstock, Abby Brown, Daniel Brisson, Erin Bennett, and Jacob Seubert, along with Sean Rickard and I (Ulf) are in T-Bay for the National XC Championships. They (we I suppose) are enjoying mid-winter like conditions skiing on perfectly groomed natural snow with temperatures just below 0C :-). I will give updates as they happen. Check the Blog or Zone4 for results.
    • Looking at the long range forecast for Edmonton it appears that the snow will stay, as temperatures only rise slightly above the freezing mark. Not sure if classic or skating is the best option so will leave that up to the coaches who are “on the ground” to decide.
  • March 10-17 – National XC Championships – Thunder Bay ON.
