bench (Lake Loop) and had lunch. (2.5 hours - round trip) Anywhere it was
open, we had snow over our knees!!! Snowshoers where also breaking trail on
the River Loop.
Sunday we were overly ambitious and took on the Truck Box loop via the
north parking lot to #10, 12, 13 and beyond to the Truck Box and we put up
more flagging as with the snow it is hard to see the trail. We came out at the lake and headed back on the Lake Loop #7, 6, 5, and Miners trial. (4.5hours) Other x-c skiers broke
trail as well and enjoyed what was already packed.
With the -18C weather it was border line keeping our toes and fingers warm.
It helped changing mitts and gloves.
There were more deer and moose tracks over by the truck box and we saw what
I would say were a wolf or a large cat, leaping/bounding impressions in the
snow. Both days.
As we had had no wind, the snow was still hanging on in the tree limbs,
making a beautiful outing.

We were close to a dozen two weeks ago and got lots done on a beautiful day.
Meet at the main parking lot, bring a lunch, handsaws, pruners, chainsaws. Last time a couple came out on bikes and really completed a lot of work, so bring your bikes if you'd like.

conditions where pretty good considering the lack of snow...we only had to
walk over dirt a couple of times and on the grass a few times. It was fun
to go together and have lunch at the falls. We walked out onto the beaver
dam ponds and over to the renewed dam. If you are considering this trip we
took 4 hours round trip with breaks, chats and lunch. A quick trip could be
done in 2.5 - 3 hours.

Out skiing today on the Syncline Trails and though they definitely could use more snow, it’s still worth a ski. Bare in spots, where there’s a full canopy of tree branches overhead. Fast on the downhill. And there’s been a big troop of snowshoers out and about.
I was down in Waterton Park on Sunday, up the Akamina Parkway and drove as far as the road is open, then skied into Wall Lake. Much better snow there as you would imagine, avalanche conditions are generally favourable, but check it out at avalanche.ca before you go; conditions can change. I talked to a friend who had been out on Forum Ridge (on the way to Wall Lake) a few days earlier and he said the snow was crusty.
