Yesterday, Monday 27th, we went to Yoho Valley Rd. with our furry friend. The temperature at the trailhead was +2, and even with our waxless skis, the snow was sticky, and we don’t have too much glide. Still, we have a fun few hours, and we had the trail all to ourselves.
Joe and Flint did a fantastic job only a few days ago track setting the road, but unfortunately, a few ski touring friends forgot that the track is to fat skis.
Great day skiing from the town of Field on the Tally Ho trail to Natural Bridge and then the Kicking Horse to the Amiskwi Fire Circle. At around 2 pm caught up with Joe, who had just set a beautiful track for us to follow to the Natural Bridge 3/4 along the Tally ho trail. With all the recent snowfall in Yoho, the trees were garnished in snow. Recent moose tracks along the Kicking Horse River and the Amiskwi River. Warm day and our wax worked well for glide and climbed up the hills to Field.
After over 25cms of amazing snow, Joe was out on Thursday, January 2nd and he tracked from Field Visitor Centre to the Tally Ho and the Natural Bridge. Kicking Horse Fireroad and Otterhead are ready to enjoy as well.
Lorraine skied the fire road, and she says “Beautifully groomed”
