|Fluffy spring powder day|
This is how we spent the last few days:
Yesterday, a couple girlfriends and I spent 5.5 hours cross country skiing in Kananaskis through fluffy soft snow, we enjoyed warm weather, dealt with the occasional clumping on our skis, and embraced the snow. Rather than fight with it, we made it our friend. Snow = Fun. Even in April.
Meanwhile, last Friday I took my son skiing for the day and he did his longest ski of the season at 6km. It was warm and sunny, we had perfect conditions on trails groomed to perfection, we didn't have to worry about freezing our toes and fingers, and we could stop for breaks rather than skiing at a fast pace to stay warm. THIS is the perfect weather for skiing with kids. Even if it is April.
|Ski day at the end of March on perfect trails!|
Need more inspiration that snow in April can still be enjoyable?
Check out this story I wrote last April: Making the Most of the Late Season Snow
|Chances are, the kids aren't as tired of the snow as you are.|
And, if you are truly done with the snow, check out this story I also wrote last April: Waiting Patiently for Spring - No More Snow
|No snow on the city pathways - so get riding!|
I'll try to mix it up a bit but I still have a LOT of snow stories to share with you so I hope you'll bear with me. :)
|You can still have a spring picnic - even in the snow.|
