November x-c skiing

Snow is slow to come this year. The first place with predictable snow is on Morraine Lake road in Lake Louise. I've been out 5 times in November. Each week getting better and better. Minimal snow levels with excellent conditions.
The bonus is training at a mild temperature around freezing with the brilliant sun shining.

Kamren joined me on Saturday for 18 km classic on Morraine Lake Road and 20 km skate on the Great Divide. Super nice to have a buddy to ski with.

I've got a snow dance going to get more snow in Kananaskis in the coming weeks.
