Write Up:
It was a warm day (approx 0C) which made for very difficult waxing.

However, if you had waxless skies (like the coordinator), the day worked out well!

The first hour of the trip was wasted with people trying different waxes in the attempt to find one that would stick. One person turned back because they couldn't get their wax to work.

When we got back to the parking lot we realized we'd lost Andre since he made a wrong turn. However, he was dropped off in the parking lot by some other skiers that took pity on him and offered him a ride back.

The route from Boulton Creek:

  1. Whiskey Jack
  2. Tyrwhitt
  3. Elk Pass (some did Hydroline)
  4. Fox Creek
  5. Moraine (most did Boulton Creek instead)

The trip was 16.8 km, and took us approximately 3.5 hrs.

After some of us went to Woody's for drinks and snacks.

Thanks to Gord for turning back, and thanks to the nice people that drove Andre back! :-)
