Michelle – taking it easy on her knee in Elgood Creek.
Michelle and I wandered up Elgood Creek this morning, checking out the snow conditions and just enjoying being in the forest. We found consolidated but still dry and consistent snow on protected Northern aspects below 1800m. At higher elevations everything was wind effected, and the skiing variable, even in the tight trees. The steep chutes off Elgood peak looked full of snow, but it wasn’t the right day for them. We sure are fortunate here in the Rossland Range, with so much great skiing that we can access directly from the Highway, ski-touring for a couple of hours is as easy as going to the gym.
