Frigid January Ski

A frigid day in January, two determined skiers take to the slopes behind Pangnirtung. Here are some pics of us skiing what we dubbed Wine Peak (or alternately, Whine Peak), because although it really sucked at the time (it was frigging cold! -28C) we realized that the memory would get much better with age.

Cold but happy.

It was so cold that the snow consistency was affected and it felt like sand under our skis. A skin fell off Markus' ski and wouldn't reattach because it was too cold for the glue to work, so he walked the last pitch to the summit.

Pulling skins off for the descent.

Weekend fun? Skijoring!

Weekend fun on out on the fjord. No experience necessary.

Sola and the boys, Gibson and Gobi. It's fun to ski with two at once!

Break time with our whole gang.

First skijor of the season.

First skijor of the season with Sola, in September! It was an excellent run. Thank-you to Markus for making us a trail. We missed all skijoring last winter, so this was especially fun for us.
