End of the Skiing Season?

So I went out today for my weekly Cross country skiing time. The point of launch was going to be around the Mohawk Chapel park. The thought was to go along the Gordon Glaves Memorial Trail to the river. I've done the trail by bike and so it was going to be a re-visit. I had hoped to do it last week, but ended up going to Mohawk Park and then starting the Hamilton-Brantford Rail Trail. Believe it or not, I actually saw skiers along that trail!

Okay this week, there had been some new snow but generally sunny skies, which meant that combined with the cold temperature there was thaw and then freezing. What that meant was parts of the trail were snow bare and the rest was icy.

I didn't ski as far as I wanted because of those conditions.

Which probably means the ending of the season.

It was a good skiing season really. Very enjoyable. Hopefully there be as much snow next year.
