Once again this year, my son is taking ski lessons each Sunday morning in January. Although this makes for an early start for both of us, it is a great opportunity to get up and out on the mountain first. This past Sunday was our first time up at Grouse Mountain this year.
The weather was less than ideal. Raining at the top of the Skyride and 0C do not make for great conditions. As I started to climb the Snow Shoe Grind, the weather did improve but visibility never really became and clearer.
At the bottom of the Snow Shoe Grind (SSG). The great thing about an early start and poor weather...it makes for a very quiet trail.
I am LOVING my new MSR Snow Shoes. They are perfect for the Snow Shoe Grind and the local packed and groomed trails.

This waterfall was flowing pretty good in the warm weather
