Analysis

A very successful outing. Beautiful clear weather, but very cold. Snow conditions were very good.

Lessons Learned

  • It's a long way to the summit. A well prepared group getting an early start should be able to make it, but it was out of reach for a low-intensity outing like this one.
  • These ski trails are lots of fun!
  • We should survey the Moose Mountain ski trails and make a map. The existing trails are quite confusing if you don't know your way around.
