“Sunday Session (17.5?)” Sunday, 15 March 2015 Cancelled!

Well Jackrabbit Managers,

I am feeling a wee bit… well actually… fully like “Captain Obvious” here, but tomorrow’s cross-country skiing session — perhaps in better times it may have been called “Sunday Session (17.5)” — for Sunday, 15 March 2015, has been hereby cancelled.

Yes, yes, yes… I know that you may think that the coaches of the Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits nordic ski club are a fairly resourceful lot, possessed of amazing physical powers:  faster than a novice snowshoer; more powerful than the front-half of a shih tzu skijoring team; and able to leap tall practice cones in a single bound.

But we do have our limits.  And Mother Nature is clearly the victor.

With eight of the last nine days having daily maximum temperatures well above 0 degrees Celsius (with a high that hit +13 degrees Celsius today) there is no longer enough snow in Assiniboine Park to ski more than a few metres without ending up on grass.  And with a forecast high of +15 degrees Celsius at what would be have been the start of skiing tomorrow, any remaining snow will likely all be gone.
