Final course recon

Below are a few pics of our final course recon, and a brief video that we just posted on Instagram.

The pics show what much of the course looks like at the time of this posting; small amounts of snow cover but recently plowed, some reasonably hard packed single track.

The video shows one of a handful of relatively short sections where there’s been a bit of drifting.

The forecast for Friday is miserable: 5 or so cm of blowing snow with winds gusting over 80 (!) km/h that day, so course conditions will likely evolve, but at the moment Saturday looks alright, starting out cold but warming to -9C in the afternoon, but with more snow forecast in the afternoon and evening.
