We hiked to Blue Spruce Campsite rather then do the long greenway trip from UNBC to Otway. Still, we hiked about 10 km return. There was too much snow on the route that we were planning to do. There was still snow on the section that we did, but it was a little less tricky. It still was hard work trudging through the snow as it was melting later on during the day. I sinked into it more then once. We've snowshoed in the Winter in this area...a lot of snow has already melted.
You can view the trip report that I wrote up on behalf of the leader of the hike at http://caledoniaramblers.ca/.

|Got never used Scarpas for cheap!|
Next week I get to lead a hike to Fraser Mountain, which is West of here. I've had someone check the conditions and it looks ok. Snow is melting on top. It probably will be wet and snowy in parts, but should be dry on top. Let's hope for some nice weather again for my hike!
