Looking to Kick 2010 off with Some Serious Mileage? Jan 2 Peter Lougheed Ski Buffet

Happy New Year to all fellow Harriers! We hope everyone has a nice relaxing Christmas and have rested up for what is going to be great year for the Bow Valley Harriers.

Matt planted the seed a while ago
about skiing all the trails in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park (PLPP). What a great idea! So why not kick off the new year with working off all that Christmas turkey.

Carl Pryce, Blaine Penny and a few other xc ski enthusiasts (or shall we call them lunatics) are planning to ski all the trails in PLPP on Saturday Jan 2. The distance is about 112 km once you link all the trails. PLPP is classic only and has a double track on most trails. The conditions are excellent and if we are lucky we'll even score some fresh grooming. If you are still not sure if this is for you, check out a recent ski at PLPP that Blaine and the gang put in just before Christmas.

It will be about a 10 to 12 hour day (depending on conditions, level of skill and fitness) and the plan is for an alpine start leaving the city at 4:30 am.

For those who may be interested and want more details, drop Blaine an email

For anyone else out there just planning a nice day of skiing, there is a great website that is really up to date on all the local trail conditions.

Cheers and Happy New Year to all!!
