Dec 9 (8h, 23m) by Andrew Dzuba from Terry Fox
Trails Skied: Classic Loop [5km], Glide Wax: waxless, Grip Wax: waxless
The Loop was partially groomed, for skate only; no classic remaining. Some grass poked up in spots, and was icy underneath in others. On waxless backcountry skis, I went through the NCC parking lot North of MB, popped off my skis and crossed Hog's Back, and went North through Vincent Massey. Good snow. Made it to Heron bridge, popped off skis to walk under, continued through VM, past the round band stand, along River by Carleton U. Icy but ski-able under the O-Train bridge. Continued, had to walk under Bronson, but ski-able along the rec path along Riverside to Bank st. Did not cross Bank.
