Winter conditions in April. After a couple of warm weeks, a return to winter, with a dusting of cold, dry snow. Spectacular day.
-8c at Boulton at 11am, and -5c at 3:30. Sun+cloud, mostly calm. Skied Whiskey Jack, Tyrwitt, Elk, Blueberry, Elk, Fox, Moraine. 25k. WJ and Tyrwitt had about 2cm of fresh, cold snow on Saturday night's track-setting, Tyrwitt was beautiful, and the tracks on Elk and Blueberrry were perfect, hard and fast. No wind at the top of Blueberry(really!!). Very few people out today. Skin skis worked fine, although wax would probably have been faster. Big predator tracks the whole length of Tyrwitt made me a little nervous.
