Still great snow up in the mountains in May!
Road clearing has begun... but it will take a while.
The weather forecast was correct... Sunny, after three days of snow.
I used waxable light touring skis starting at minus 5 and ending at plus 10.
And it should be sunny again tomorrow... Enjoy!

Trailhead does not look promising

But there are options beside the icy road...

...or in the ditch...

...or on the road

Snow removal has only gone 2 Km

Then there are no more issues

Strange... Parks Canada seems to have removed the Avalanche Danger sign

View from the Viewpoint

My only advice... don't try to hike past the viewpoint

Worthwhile to ski up the Rockpile

Bragging Rights

Returning... he's only gone a few metres since I last saw him.

Wet snow means a clean machine!

Are those your tracks in the 3/4 Cooler?

Hey AT,
I did not have my AT (Tua) skis today, but if I had, I'd have been tempted!
Check this video out for those who did:
Heck, that was in June... we still have all of May, for cross country skiing!

3/4 Couloir
