The full text of that saying is…
“No such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.”
Credit for coining that phrase goes to Alf Skrastins who is also the author of tonight’s featured trip report…
“Obviously a lot of other SkierBob regulars were looking at the weather forecasts and grooming reports and came to the same conclusion that Ribbon Creek was the best bet for conditions today.
It’s obvious that a lot of work had been done to remove bent, broken and downed trees from the trails. With new the new snow that followed, the grooming is in excellent shape. But the real bonus was the weather! I recorded a temp of -7C when I arrived and a high of -4C at the viewpoint bench at the high point of the Ribbon Creek trail. What a treat, when we know that we have a very frigid week ahead!”
Thanks for all the trip reports today. Alf may have coined another descriptive term today “The Ribbon Creek corkscrew.”
Pete submitted 32 excellent photos including wolf tracks from Cascade Valley.
