2014 Winter Season

Ski Conditions

Sunday, April 19, 2014 -- We car pooled up and had a group of 6 skiers and 3 snowshoers.  The promise that there was still lots of snow weighed on people's minds as we drove up Highway 400 and saw a lot of bare rock and little patches of snow.  After all, April Fool's Day had already passed.  Off we went in our two groups:  skiers skiing a 16 km loop from Galla Lake > Dark Lake Trail > Musquash > Grays Rapids > Galla Lake; the snowshoers doing a 10 km. route just southwest of Galla Lake, off our maps, on a total dryland route.  Beautiful day with the sun shining.  Back at the cars, we talked that maybe we might still be able to get another week of skiing in with all the snow still found in the woods.  Click here to see some of the photos.
