Hello Jackrabbit Managers,
Tomorrow’s session (Sunday, 26 January 2014) of the Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits has been cancelled.
Air temperature is forecast to be -21 degrees Celsius with a -37 Celsius windchill at skiing time. This is predicted to be significantly colder than our official -27 degree Celsius cutoff (https://assiniboineparkjackrabbits.wordpress.com/is-it-too-cold/).
Also, even though Nordic X-Ventures mechanically groomed the Assiniboine Park trails late this afternoon, with winds forecast to be 50 kmh gusting to 70 kmh at skiing time on Sunday, it is likely that much of the tracks that we would try to ski in would be obliterated.
And speaking of obliterated, but on a much happier note: Have your young skiers see (three minute video) how Canada’s Alex Harvey came first at last week’s FIS Cross-Country World Cup Sprint Free race (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O77LHto8vFM) — skied in 0 degree Celsius conditions!
