Yes, we knew there would be snow. We thought maybe there might be quite a bit of snow... I think we were both surprised to be in such deep snow ;-)!!!. Luckily, some brave souls had broken trail for us so we didn't sink in too deep or need snow shoes! Polar bear Doug was in heaven!
As we went higher up the trail, the giggling college girls in tennis shoes made way for some serious hikers with ice pics, survival supplies and 4-legged-friends!
It was cold and windy and I was thrilled to finally get to the tramway.... Unfortunately there was a 1.5 hour wait to ride down. I partially de-iced by having some green chili soup and hot chocolate but didn't totally defrost until a hot shower back at the house.
