Today’s skiing will go into the log book as a “best day.” They don’t get any better.
After climbing Whiskey Jack I noticed the tracks of two animals along Pocaterra. After following them down Pocaterra for about 2K, I could see they came from the ungroomed “back door” trail. That’s the trail we use to access Upper Pocaterra before the barricade goes down. There are skier-set tracks on the back door trail and the animals walked in them.
They also marked their territory right at the spot where the back door meets Upper Pocaterra.
I could notice some fur drag on the footprints. I didn’t see toenails.
The tracks continued up Pocaterra and are also on Tyrwhitt. Tyrwhitt has 10 cm of fresh snow with wobbly tracks.
