A day of fun at Sugarbowl

This past Saturday, I went on the hike up Sugarbowl led by Brenda.  The last time I had snowshoed up a mountain, I didn't make it to the top and it was a long day!  So I was a bit nervous about trying it again.

Back to the Grand Canyon of the Fraser

Message left for us where we parked the cars

Last Sunday, I went on the Rambler's snowshoe trip to the Grand Canyon of the Fraser.  It was a cold -25 c the day before, so the first thing that I did when I got out of bed that morning was check the temperature.  If it was -20 or colder, I would have cancelled my ride to the meeting place and went back to bed!  As luck would have it, it was -18, so I decided to do the trip.  And I was sure glad that I did.

Memories of Grand Canyon of the Fraser

Tomorrow, the Caledonia Ramblers will be doing a snowshoe trip to the Grand Canyon of the Fraser which is over 100 kms east of Prince George -.  I haven't been there for a few years.  It is always easier getting there in the Winter as there isn't much of a trail in the Summer, so it requires a lot of bushwhacking!

I've dug up some photos from a snowshoe trip that we did there in 2006.  It was a fun trip!  This area has lots of history, the steamboats used to go through here.
That's Purden Ski Hill

Corky Lake Video

I just realized that I forgot to post the little video I created on the Corky Lake Snowshoe trip..... club members have started making videos for the website now and I thought that I would join in...  Enjoy!

Corky Lake Snowshoe

There was an even bigger group on today's snowshoe trip to Corky Lake.  25 people showed up for the trip! I am amazed at the interest in snowshoeing.  But it's hard not to see why it's gaining popularity.  Once you invest in a pair of good snowshoes, it's a cheap fun activity that costs hardly anything.  There are many places that you can snowshoe for free.
