-Breanna on Packers-
I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day to end a wonderful ski season. Skiing on cold snow with beautiful tracksetting and later seeing so many of the blog “regulars” at the hut.
I filled in a few “blanks” by skiing some trails for the first time this winter including the Upper Lake trail and Rolly Road. After sking the Upper Lake trail, Cheryl dropped me off at Boulton Creek so I could ski Packers and Pocaterra back to the hut.
I was able to climb Packers on VR45(-2/-8) with reasonably good grip. There’s 5 cm of new snow over the 6-day-old tracksetting but the tracks were still in great shape. No ice flow in the usual spot.
From the top of Packers I had excellent new tracksetting all the way to the hut, ending with Rolly Road. I never get tired of the fast ‘n fun downhill between Packers and Lynx.
Thank you to everyone who brought treats for today’s Meet ‘N Greet. Helga drove all the way from Bragg Creek and brought along a tasty coffee cake. Thanks!
Thanks for all the trip reports this winter
I noticed a lot of new names submitting trip reports this season. Your input is much appreciated.
All trip reports are valuable, as they help other skiers decide where to ski. Some people stick to the facts with a clear, concise description and I know many readers appreciate “short and sweet.” There are a few who are “different,” and I mean “different” in a good way 🙂
I appreciate the descriptive language which Mary Perrott uses for her trip reports. (Thanks for the delicious cookies and muffins today, Mary.) Stephen Vermeulen often has his report in before noon, while I’m still having my morning coffee. I was happy to see Stephen at the hut today.
I wish I could write like my friend Chip who has an extraordinary command of the English language and a good sense of humour. Steve Riggs comes up with unique words such as “edgeable.” We are privileged to hear and see photos of epic adventures which we’d never know about if it wasn’t for Chuck and his “photo-journals”. All dog-lovers enjoy Kazzy’s reports.
I’m finished sking for this season, but everyone else can continue submitting trip reports.
