Joe plans to track set from Field to the Natural Bridge and down the Kicking Horse today! No more woollies(twigs, mini trees) on the trail! THEN–he plans to go pack at Emerald for the first time yet–staying off the lake and using the walking trail–up to the Horse Trail and off to the Fan ! He could be snorkelling !!! Not sure if he will have time to set a trail??? We will let you know how it goes when he reports in!
TAK FALLS road has a good 1′ base and is double track set–Dogs allowed here!
And the boys hauled another older picnic table to the OtterTail Viewpoint on the Kicking Horse Road–got shovels at all 3 locations along the way–and set a new track on the way home! Way to go Joe & Bruce!! See you on the trail tomorrow –should be sweet!
Joe just put 2 tracks in on the road– for 5.5 km. one way. About 10″ of snow and very dry but it’s a new place to ski and enjoy different scenery!
Construction at the Kicking Horse Campground continues and the road is open and all plowed to Cathedral Lodge. Probably still wise to park in the usual spot by Monarch Overflow by the open gate and ski in the bush.
Good news–we got a picnic table to replace the “missing” one on the Kicking Horse Fireroad at the beautiful viewpoint for the OtterTail Valley!! Just gotta wait for more snow to get it down there. Do your snow dance eh?
Not too many words needed. Great sun at 11 am at Emerald River and great tracks–to the missing picnic table at Ottertail viewpoint?? What is with that??? A lot of wooly bits along the trail but we have a good track!! Tally-Ho is also done to the Natural Bridge–from town. A bit thin on the flats by the Info Hall. Enjoy!!
