I couldn’t have asked for a nicer way to spend my birthday than skiing my all-time favourite loop on great conditions and in lovely weather.
Update: Our expert tracker, Barb Banff, thinks they are wolverine. The animal tracks running for a couple kilometres along Tyrwhitt were causing a lot of consternation among the skiers today. We’ve heard on the trip reports that they could be bear tracks, but it would have to be an awfully…
