Up North: a little vid

Hey Bri7, you'll shit your pants! Look at that: Caro and I went North and found some real decent snow for BC XC skiing. At some point, I sank up to my ankle in a small lake... You know what? These Merrell Ultras boots, well grease in Snoseal, were just a little wet, not much!

I must admit, i’m surprised by the amount of snow remaining, especially at km 123... Do you think the snow coverage is better up north? What is the elevation over there?

I don’t get it, why didn’t you cut accross the lake instead of going around?

My old man used to say : « A Phalanx of ice is thick enough to resist a man and his horse »

I doubt Ste-Tabernacle will hold anything decent past this week end.

But there is hope, Saint-Sauveur glacier is still 20 feet deep. It should be skiable early june. By then the parc will be melted.
