Conditions

It’s been a while–with this dry 3 week cold spell after the moist, warm wet spell!  Believe it or not–we still have snow!  And the tracks are holding up fairly well with the cold. They are FAST but still pretty good. Use CAUTION! The LAKE surface is getting better for ski skating on(or classical skiing) and you can get an edge now. Caution on the old icy hard trail that leads away from the avalanche path. It’s good to go everywhere else–even the crust off track on the fan and along the Kicking Horse River Trail. We are hopeful there will be great spring skiing yet to come–with NEW white stuff!!!!

Read the last post with the info on our Ski Club Dinner…..it was FANTASTIC!

IT’S SNOWING….!!!!! FINALLY

Was lovely to see the blue ski–but enough already. Woke up to white! Got maybe 5 cms. for now–which will help a lot on the existing trails.  Off trails is still bombproof for travelling. The Snowshoers are sure loving it! The lake you can travel anywhere. Very icy in font of our dock and the trail leading away from the avalanche path to the shore. Still be careful of steep pitches.  But get out there. NEVER MIND—Get out here!!!   It’s our annual dinner tonite 6 pm in Field!  Hope to see you there!  Marilyn
