If only I had worked for Esso, I could join this fun group of retirees who I met on the trail today. I was happy to briefly join the fun, long enough for me to lead them
It’s been a pleasure reading all the trip reports today with such good conditions for this time of year.
I was originally planning on skiing the new tracksetting in PLPP today but as I was driving past Kananaskis Village I pulled over and checked the Live Grooming
Friday skiing part 2: Here are the photos from what I have started calling the Evan-Thomas loop which is 7K in distance.
With strong winds and warm temperatures in the forecast, Peter and I went early, hoping to ski the Bill Milne trail before the weather took its toll.
The trails I did today are all very easy, and offer some spectacular scenery. I did a 7K loop including Evan-Thomas fire road, Wedge Connector, and Bill Milne.
Thanks to all the rock pickers on Skogan Pass! As more skiers snowplow over the trail, more rocks appear. I was busy digging one of them out of the Screamer when
Fallsalot mentioned playing hooky and “skiing orgy.” Tomorrow would be a perfect day to do it. I wish I had thought of “skiing orgy” because that would have described this wonderful day.
Today was probably the perfect day to ski. Snow is still cold, but the air temperature was pleasant, with sunny skies and no wind. The conditions on Bill Milne and Wedge Connector are as good as I’ve ever seen them.
