Goat Creek – Pine Needles Anyone?

On Sunday the Foothills Nordic Masters headed out to the Banff start of the Goat Creek trail (in hopes of skiing the 20k to Canmore and then back). Unfortunately, mother nature decided that wasn’t going to happen.

Good lookin' Foothills folks

It had been really windy the day before, and the trail was covered in pine needles. For those of you who are skiers, you’ll know that those little bugger needles are a fantastic means of removing any sort of kick wax…making for a pretty challenging ski.

We ended up crossing over to the far side of the river and worked on our double poling…for a few hours.

Great to make the most of the conditions with a group of fantastic skiers.
