We had approximately ten inches of fresh snow here on the Monday and very high winds and drifting on Friday.
We spent several hours on Thursday night grooming and extending the trail to make 10 miles for training.
The trails here now look great!
On Thursday, we ran two 12 dogs teams for 8 miles each. On Friday, we ran one team 4.5 miles and the Open Team 10 miles.
All the dogs that ran at Valcartier are in great shape and with no signs of fatigue.
Forgot to report that Sam Skijored at Valcartier with Cecile. They had to go out on the trail after the other skijorers as Cecile skies didn't meet regulation. Sam really enjoyed the experience and did a great job. She resumed her position in the 12 dog team this week with renewed confidence.
I would like to thank Natasha Kushner for the generous donation to the kennel to support the dogs from the Kushner Family.
I would also like to make a special thanks the Photographers the took photos at the race. Please check out their Facebook or Websites for more exciting photos of the race.
Until next week.......
