'Bent and I went for a late afternoon ski around Kolapore, which has a *lot* of snow.
It's warming up though, and I'm getting nervous. I saw slush along the highway, which means spring skiing is coming, and I am *not* ready to give up winter yet. Coach LD and Goose are smart to go to Yellowknife next week. :)
But for today, it was still winter and we had a wonderful ski with lots of stops so 'Bent could take GoPro footage. (I deducted some time.)
He also put up a new sign to keep snowshoers off our connector route between the Bruce Trail and the ski trail network. Several groups of hikers have followed our bushwhacking tracks off the Bruce Trail, then they've walked on the ski trails. Ugh, guilt.
We ran into Mr. and Mrs. Gally! She was feeling off after getting her 2nd dose of Pfizer vaccine yesterday. Best reason ever to feel unwell.
'Bent flew down the western Wild Mouse trail. I'd hoped to take video but there was no time to set up the camera for that.
I recently discovered that I have the Strava QOM (Queen of the Mountain for non-Strava users) segment on the eastern Wild Mouse climb. Bob has the KOM. The first QOM happened by accident but today both of us gave it a good shot. 'Bent is still 2nd to Bob, as he was before - now by 7 seconds. I took a big chunk off my time though, extending my lead over the 2nd place woman to 2 minutes. Strava helpfully pointed out that I only need to cut out another 39 seconds to catch Bob, lol. I find this hilarious. Speed has *never* been my thing so it's weirdly fun to have the chance to think that way in this tiny corner of sport.
