We had members from the Alpine Club of Canada to help fill our bus. They were a great group of 5 people. It was not our best day of skiing this winter since we were plagued with slush on the ponds and marshes. And we can't complain about the deep snow because it was needed after the two weeks of melt. However, it did make for tough going and burning thigh muscles. It was a winter wonderland and we had snow flurries most of the day. As usual everyone came back to the bus with smiling faces. How could we not after spending a perfect day on our trails in quiet solitude. Gusty winds on the ponds and lakes but perfect stillness in the woods.
