High Park Ski Club

Race #4: February 12, 2017 (Classic only)

Light fluffy snow fell all day at Wasaga Nordic, creating a winter wonderland and great conditions for our classic race.

13 participants completed a 3.64km course, starting and ending from the shelter. There we were cheered on by a cute snowman, complete with his own XC ski poles. The course started on the Blueberry Plains trail, before going on my favourite trail, the Pine Trail. The Pine Trail is a lovely classic only, double tracked trail with rolling hills through the pine trees. Amazing.

Jean-Emile, Michael and Charles battled it out to exhaustion, with Jean-Emile emerging victorious. Heather finished with the fastest women’s time, followed closely by Tairan Qin.

Thank you to everyone who participated!
