After an almost two week stint of no sliding on the snow (most of us were sick) and feeling cooped-up in the city, @reneetougas and I finally got out for a day of cross-country skiing. A nice 15km loop with some good downhill sections, and a fantastic amount of snow.
After a couple of weeks with no nature time, @reneetougas and I were able to steal away for a few hours of fantastic cross-country skiing in the Laurentiens. A new region this time, known as Val-des-Lacs.
One section of trail was not great for skiing without climbing skins. Thankfully the trail was packed enough that we could carry our skis and go on foot. This is the first time @reneetougas has used her new ski pack for carrying skis, and this was the perfect time to give it a try.
