Packing-up and classic skiing before we had lunch and left mid-afternoon. First, I skied a loop with Urs. Then he brought me over to the trailhead at the InterContinental (where Trump stayed in, bleugh) and skied up to the Wolfgang Pass where Sandra, Lena, Matti and Urs waited. So glad I could ski this latter section again, with my new classic skis it is so much easier, they hold on the uphill and feel safe on the downhills. What difference a good ski can make.
Wondering whether this was the cross-country skiing for this winter as the Jura has not had much snow and now, all is green :'-/(. It's been a terrible winter, too warm, too stormy with definitely barely any really cold days. But here's still March............?
Skateskiing 1:16:48  6.33 km (12:08 / km) +49m 11:41 / km
Bringing Lena to her last ski school lesson and final ski race this morning. Doing a minor loop on skate skis. It had snowed 20-30 cm overnight and it was beautiful but hard to skate as groomed early in the morning, but not much after. After her race did a little loop and went home earlier (skipping the awards) to get lunch ready as we were sure everyone was ravenous.
Classic x-c skiing 1:42:57  12.38 km (8:19 / km) +136m 7:53 / km
Same deal in the afternoon for Matti's last ski school lesson and final race. Watched his runs, and he raced down really well and determined. Did little loops between waiting and then stayed for the awards at 4 pm. He had won in his class (even though he was one of the smallest!). The classes are put together by ability not necessarily age, and there are many older kids with the young kids.
Went afterwards to do a little loop up on the world cup loop where I didn't see another soul, then back out and down again to the main valley where I did another loop to the ski center and back until I felt really tired. Now, my muscles finally start to feel the skiing meaning that I can finally put an effort into them. It actually really feels good how I can push off and have some decent speed (and pass people). A big change to beginning of the week.
I also skied into the sunset and it was glorious.
Vacation is over tomorrow, going back home where there is no snow whatsoever, sniff. And Sunday should be almost 20 degrees warm.
