“It’s perfect — sun and snow!” This comment surprisingly came not from a skier, but from the bus driver as we disembarked under a brilliant sky for the club’s January 29th trip to Kawartha Nordic.
After so many overcast days in a row, we were all glad for a sunny day. On the trails, the brightness of the day was reflected in the broad smiles of passing skiers, glad for the great ski conditions and low wind. Trakkers also hasn’t been out to Kawartha for some time, and it’s long been a favourite for many in the club.
Although it is a bit longer to get to Kawartha Nordic, I always love going there for the gently undulating trails that take us through the mainly mixed coniferous forest. Maybe it’s that little extra distance from Toronto that lets people be more friendly, as almost everyone we passed on the trail said hi and some we never met before stopped to talk to us. To add to the positive experience, Kawartha Nordic this year has added a trailer with women’s and men’s washrooms, accessible from the chalet.
All around, a great day.
