Race Preview: Canadian Junior and Senior Championships

FasterSkierMarch 5, 2006

Lappe Nordic Ski Centre is in immaculate shape heading into the Canadian National Championships which start Sunday March 5 with the junior, open and university relay races. Lappe Nordic Centre has a great history of hosting big races, including the Canadian Senior Nationals in 1997 and the Canadian Junior Championships in 2000. It is argued by many to have the best trails and grooming in Canada, and the conditions over the past couple of days certainly strengthen that argument. Both skating and classic tracks are in great shape and the weather over the next few days looks conducive to fun skiing. Evening low temperatures have been close to —20, with beautiful sunshine warming things up to about —5 during the warmest part of the day. There is lots of snow that is new enough to be clean while still being old enough to be fast. Everyone has their fingers crossed for more of the same in the coming days.
