Lower Ward – Friday AM, December 30, 2022
There were lots skiers on the lower part of Ward Trail this morning (Friday, Dec. 20, 2022). About 2 to 3 inches of new snow on the packing that had been done yesterday (Dec. 29). The Staircase and Wild backcountry trails were also tracked by skiers and snowshoe trekkers. The packing on Ward made it easy to access some hills, which were much fun this morning. I encountered 2 small, newly downed trees about 1 to 1.5 km from the Ward trailhead, but they were easy to ski around. Photo shows some “earned turns” on “Gretchen’s Hill” in the lower Ward area.
