Black Prince Snow Shoeing

Jan 1 2021


Snowshoed Black Prince on New Years Day. Parking lot was full but we only met two backcountry skiers going up. The route up was a bit off the normal route and we had to go up a gully that was not on the normal route, which would have been more to the south. Lots of fun and then picked a way back to the more worn way up towards the Tarns. Wind and driving snow stopped us on the flat plateau before the tarns. After a quick bite to eat in a sheltered treed area we descended. Great fun coming down through the deep snow. So much so that we went back down through the gully. Then took the loop to the south which is the interpretive route in the summer .On the wide track coming down a family was having a lot of fun tobogganing down.
