This weekend was the inaugural Eagle Point Loppet hosted by my parent’s local club in Drayton Valley – Pembina Nordic. Dad and other members of the club put in some pretty long hours tracksetting in the week leading up to the race (I’m sure lots of other folks put in many hours preparing) and it sure paid off! The trails were in great form (with a dusting of fresh powder that fell over night).
Ok so this blog post comes a bit delayed but I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year than at my favourite spot – Nipika Eco-resort. Lyle and the team setup a night ski on New Year’s Eve – lit by Norwegian candles, what a treat! It was pretty special and a fun way to spend the evening.
