Work obligations kept me in Ottawa today so I snuck over to Mooney's Bay for a quick exercise skate ski. I don't think there had been grooming since last Monday (see Jo-Ann's report from Mar. 3) but with warm temperatures and soft snow skiing was still surprisingly good. The skate lane was flat and the classic tracks distinct. Even without grooming skiing should be OK in the coming week in the afternoons with temperatures above freezing. There is enough variety in the trails to ski for about an hour without getting totally bored, and ascending Mt. Mooney is good exercise. It's nice to have one XC ski area within the city- it's too bad there aren't more.
