Last year was a disaster. I woke up with flu like symptoms and a fever. I drove to the park with a thermometer in my mouth and skied as far as Fortune Lake. I went home and stayed there for 5 days with what was I think my second bout of flu in my life and certainly the worst.
This year went a lot better. Dejan, Deb, Steph and Dan joined me and we left P9 at 10.30.
P9-->Parkways and 1B to Western-->McKinstry-->Firetower-->#1 and back to P9. 39.9km.
The snow started at 11 and was relentless with 10cm on the ground by the end which made the return journey very heavy going. I made it back to the car shortly before 4pm with the two hut stops. A grand day out indeed.
