    Lake Katherine was skier tracked.

    The lot to North Escarpment was not yet ploughed (although 19 was fine), and we didn’t see any ski tracks heading in.

    Lower Bald Hill was apparently groomed yesterday, although you wouldn’t have known it to see it with all the fresh snow. The beginning of the trail was skier tracked, then heavily trampled by deer using those ski tracks as a freeway, then skier tracked again by us. So the base is actually pretty firm, although you’ll be dragging your poles through deep fluffy snow. The original skier turned back after a km or so; we carried on for a while, eventually meeting up with the trail of a lone wolf.
