XC: Afternoon at Frozen Thunder

Cross country skiers keen to get started on the season - this is your opportunity! We'll meet at 10:30am in Calgary, and drive over to the Canmore Nordic Center, where they've installed 2km of snow for skiing. The plan is for people to ski at their leisure for 2 hours, and then - given covid regs - we'll head home. I might bring classic and skate skis, and decide on arrival which to use and/or mix it up. Trail fees apply.
