Mount Kirkup and Mount Grey

We had a great snowshoeing day up Mount Kirkup and Mount Grey and looping back down the Old Glory trail.

The weather was not promising on the way up – and then – bingo! blue skies and sunshine! Layers were peeled off.

After that, it was a funfest of layers on and layers off and sunglasses on and off. We had snow and sun – cold and warmth, big wind on top of Kirkup and soft fluffy flakes of snow coming down Grey.

And we loved it. The weather gave us everything. Best of all, we had powder so coming down was a delight.

Great group: Ben and the women: Tammy, Cecilia, Leah, Kathleen and me.

A delightful extra: we found the door to the ski patrol cabin on top of Grey unlocked. Don’t tell anyone but we did go in (despite the sign saying “authorized people only”) and had lunch lolling on couches. I figured it was open so hey! We were duly authorized, right?

Still – don’t tell anyone.

Just a very great day.
