The life of teenagers means that it is much more difficult for us to get very far on the weekends these days, as everyone has something going on that they need a ride to/from. Thankfully, cross-country skiing is keeping us sane, as @reneetougas and I steal away every chance we get to explore the city parks. Today was pretty cold (-29C with the wind chill) so we had the trails to ourselves.
It was @celine's turn for a ski with me today. We had a couple inches of fresh powder and the temperature was a little warmer than the few days, so it made for very nice conditions.
I snapped this one on today's ski with @celine, I am really happy with how it turned out, it really feels like it captures the motion quite well.
Blue skies, crisp snow, frigid weather, and my ski companion for life @reneetougas on our new years eve day ski along the Lachine Canal.
Somewhat of an annual tradition now, we went for a Boxing Day family hike at Gaff Point, a short drive from @karentogo's home in Nova Scotia. It was a little blustery, but it was nice to get out and enjoy some fresh air and beautiful scenery.
I think I am really going to enjoy having cross-country skis this year. @reneetougas and I were able to steal away for a short outing before taking the kids to their Christmas function this afternoon.-- Damien Tougas
A week of snow and cold means our first ski day of the season. A couple weeks ago I purchased a pair of cross-country skis and boots so that @reneetougas and I can take advantage of the many ski trails around Montreal. It is very nice to be back on the snow!
I am looking forward to slip-sliding around the city. This will be the first season that I can put my running shoes in storage instead of filling the soles full of machine screws...
