Write Up:
The moonlight was dim but the ski was terrific. We set out from the trail head with a bit of day light. Most people turned their headlamps on fairly quickly, but many chose to ski the entire night without extra light. We ended up divided into three groups according to pace. Thanks to Kevin, Martine, Andrew and all of the others who looked out for the first group. A slightly slower group skied together and did the Moose Loop in the opposite direction--better downhills apparently. A third group, led by Jason, did part of the Moose Loop before turning back.

The downhills were a bigger rush in the dark, but there was an element of danger too. There was at least one casualty and we hope Tom won't be off the trails too long.

Thanks to everyone who helped out with this event.
