Report:

Ce fut une randonnée parfaite!

Le voyage a été facile avec une chaussée sèche et une circulation fluide. Nous avons débuté la randonnée à 10h00 tel que prévu. Les premiers 1,5 km avaient été ouvert mécaniquement. Sur les 3,6 km suivant, seulement deux raquetteurs avaient emprunté le sentier. Il y avait de 20 à 25 cm de neige fraiche. Ce qui était très agréable dans les descentes abruptes. À notre arrivée au refuge il y avait seulement deux occupants. Le poêle chauffait déjà. Ce fut un agréable diner au chaud. Sur le chemin du retour vers le stationnement la marche a été facile. Nous avons parcouru 7,5 km en 3h44 incluant 30 minutes pour le diner.
