We had only a few takers for our two tours this weekend, but the participants had a great time anyway. Perhaps others were out at the Yukon Quest or doing other things.
Rosie Creek Ramble
Report from leader Steven Hansen:
There was a small turnout this time, just two other skiers. But we had a good time of it nonetheless, doing the full loop in just under two hours in perfect snow conditions. Temperature was right around 0 at the beaver pond and probably rose 15 degrees where we topped out on the ridge.
Bear Creek Descent-Ascent of Chuck Johnson Trail
Report from leader Philip Marshall:
Attached 3 pics of yesterday’s ski. 2 attendees; 2 dogs. Perfect weather & conditions: ~3′ snow; ~5 deg F topside; ~-8 deg F valley floor. Maybe 2 mph wind. 3 hrs. Bright sun as it returns on a clear day! Skins mandatory. No animals; moose tracks. Full moon circled overhead later. Cosmic.
