-Juliana, Tom and Mark at the Wheeler – Amos(south) junction-
No need for a long story about today’s skiing. Everything is perfect on the trails I skied in the middle section of Peter Lougheed Provincial park. The photos below will tell the story better than I can.
At 12:20 pm, air temperature was -11°C, and the snow was -12. I lost or misplaced my brand new tin of VR40, so I used Start for snow temperature -7/-12 and it worked well. I could have used VR30, but I thought the temperature was going to warm up. It did a bit, and was -8 when I finished at 2:42 pm.
I started at Elkwood Amphitheatre and skied a 20K loop including Wheeler, Whiskey jack, Pocaterra, Lynx, Amos, Woolley, Meadow.
The photo of Jason was taken while we were both doing a fast downhill on Pocaterra.
I’ve updated the PLPP Maps on the main menu. The new maps show the changes to Pocaterra, Come-along, and Boulton creek. I’ve also changed a couple distances which I know are incorrect.
