It has been a busy month! With 2 races in the Canmore area and quite a few longer training sessions, I've managed to stay quite busy.
The BCRR (Bow Corridor Regional Race) is a great series for beginner and experienced skiers. The series comprises of 4 events each winter. Each event is a different discipline or distance from the others. They are always fun races. Nipika, which is a resort immediately adjacent to Kootenay National Park has become a regular loppet for me. Everything was going well in the 20km Skate race until I took a nasty tumble and broke my pole! Unfortunately for me that was the end of my racing. Congratulations to the winner, Nathan Smith.
The Olympic Torch passed through Canmore recently. It was amazing to see all the people out cheering the torch bearers and catching the Olympic spirit. For me, it was a bittersweet experience. Still a great time though.
Keep those skis flat
