Friday afternoon, a few of us went out to enjoy the new southern Ontario snow, and tried cross country skiing for the first time. We headed up to Albion Hills, only about 45 minutes north of the city. But first, a little breakfast/lunch.
Chris not only cooked up some omelettes, but being the only one who's actually cross country skied before, also offered up some pointers.
It turned out to be a perfect day out...
While getting the ski pattern down wasn't too difficult, staying balanced on those thin skis was.
But, we all eventually got the hang of it!

Costs ran about $23 per person after all rentals, park fees and taxes.
An awesome experience, and I would definitely like to go back there again this winter; maybe this time for a full day instead of just the afternoon. We were a bit pressured for time as we got up there a bit late, but with light flurries and no wind, the afternoon was pretty perfect.
