Did it AGAIN – Jan 3

Filed under: Canada, Home, Ski — K2 in Canada @ 9:59 PM

Jan 3 was the last day of the Christmas break. It was also the last day with beautiful sunny skies and below O temperatures. Our muscles seemed recovered enough for another try on skis. It went a bit better than 2 days ago and I was able to complete a loop without a crash – but I also got tired easier since I was actually skiing more. Jeff dragged me down a long hill which was supposed to be for advanced skiers only and I was proud to get to the bottom without a crash using my newly acquired snow plow skills. Even managed to avoid the kid that was lying on the run near the steepest part. My knees were shaking badly though at the bottom. And the climb back up was very painful – we had already skied for over an hour without a rest.  Nevertheless we lasted 2.5hrs again but I was much more tired at the end barely able to stand on those damn narrow slippery things. But hey, we stopped in at Deep Cove Outdoors on the way back and had a look at their skis – luckily all their sales people were busy so we didn’t buy anything 🙂

On the practise run

 

Far from perfect still

 

But I made it to Hollyburn Lodge
