Crepes and Skating in Quebec

Last night we took our annual trip into Quebec City for a stroll and a crepe dinner. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.
Desert crepe for Tess with goodies inside.
Here are some pictures from our pre-breakfast jog and stretch.
As always, click on any picture to enlarge it.





This morning some kids tested skis while others did easy distance. We then gathered for some V1 technique work. We started by skiing up the hill 3 times w/o poles to try to find the correct body position and proper weight shift in order to keep both skis gliding.

We then went 1/2 up w/o poles and added in poles on top.

We finished with 4-5 climbs with poles. The hill was pretty steep and the snow was soft so it was a good way to work on feeling the snow and finding a rhythm vs just powering up.
Droopy hat and friends, looking good :)

This afternoon we will work on V2, V2 alternate and balance.
