REPORT:

We were 7 participants. Two were guests from Cornwall.

Weather was great for snowshoeing. The temperature was -4°C and the winds were light. On the previous day 25 cm of snow had fallen. We were lucky because other hikers had walked the trail before us so we didn’t have to break trail. It took us 5 hours 10 minutes to do the kike, that includes 20 minutes for lunch.
