I’ll give you one guess as to who skied up to Lake O’Hara today. Yes, Chuck went all the way to the lake and provided this report…

“Good conditions with cold snow on a solid snowmobile packed and skier tracked trail. No thin areas and absolutely no rocks. No tracksetting yet.

Details available in the photo descriptions here:

Rodi Blue -2 to -6 kick wax was perfect, and metal edges were nice on the return.”

If you read the captions on Chuck’s photos, you’ll know that avalanche danger exists at 6.5K along the trail. You can see the remnants of the 2017 avalanche.

The shelter at the end of the trail is not open due to to the pandemic. The Lodge will not be open this winter, but I hope we get some grooming from the big snowcat which is owned by Lake O’Hara Lodge.
