I don’t want this weekend to end….

Filed under: Canada, Ski — K2 in Canada @ 7:15 PM

And that’s not only because there are a few more warm and sunny days in the forecast or because I have to prepare these presentation for Tuesday and Wednesday which I haven’t even started yet ….

Another day in spring skiing paradise. Mind you this is almost to hot to go skiing. Shorts and T-shirt was the attire today. And of course we forgot the sunscreen…. Today we went all the way up to the Callaghan Wilderness Lodge. And up it is… all the way with hardly a break. The trail is fairly open and you get exposed to a LOT of sun. Views are few and far in between because of the trees, but the views you do get are well worth it. Had a look at Callaghan Lake and stopped for a sip of water after climbing 500+m over 9kms. From the lake it is another 5+km to the lodge and that’s still all up. A total of almost 14km and over 700m of climbing. Needless to say I was pretty tired half way into our ski. But what goes up must come down and even though that was a bit more work than usual because of the soft snow which the crowns just dug into, it was almost all down. 3hrs and 40min, 27km on skis getting the first sunburn of 2013 :-). I so deserved the Guinness afterwards….
