This is unfortunate, and I hope we can help Lori catch the perpetrators. Let’s all be on the lookout for any suspicious behavior at the trailheads.
We enjoyed a fantastic ski and snowshoe day with our two kids at Elk Pass, Fox Creek and Boultan Creek today. I switched to snowshoes at 2:20 and went with my daughter on the Elk Pass snowshoe trail for quick powder pounce while my husband did a quick ski with my son, before returning to our car at 2:45. While changing gear at 2:20 we accidentally left out camera in our trunk (I NEVER leave valuables in the car, but was distracted and forgot it) and realized when we got home that it was gone. Someone broke into our car between 2:20-2:45 at the Elk Pass trailhead and stole our Panasonic Lumix camera from the trunk. There were lots of skiers in the parking lot at that time and I wonder if perhaps anyone saw anything suspicious. Our car was on the north side, close to the the bathrooms; a red Corolla with a roof rack. If you are able to post this message, perhaps one of your readers might know something that I could pass on to the RCMP. If we could catch these people it would be much better for all trail users.
After such a fantastic day it is so upsetting to learn thieves are lurking in the parking areas, watching for opportunity.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
