    Skied most of Hilton Saturday afternoon/evening. Still more snow needed but there was enough to have an enjoyable outing on rock skis. Wouldn’t advise taking your nice skis out just quite yet. Skied over the odd branch and pieces of vegetation poking through the snow that has fallen. Trail was partially skier-tracked and we continued on past where the last skiers ended off. Lots of animal activity on the trail, including wolf prints. It appears someone has been through with a mower to cut the brush that has poked through the snow in previous years. I’m not sure who usually grooms this trail, as it is not updated on the park’s website, but it is definitely one of my favourites and is usually in great shape. It’s a fun run out on a gradual downslope and then a climb back up to the top of the trailhead.
