Chester Lake Ski Dec 2011


Quick tele ski with Wietse into Chester. Went early to avoid crowds and to be back early.

Lots of people – skiers, snowshoers, dogs and even hikers! (30 +).  Don’t understand how the snowshoe couples miss the snowshoe uptrack(sign) and the ski up track(sign) and end up in the middle of the ski down trail!  Both times – Two separate corners, middle of the track, didn’t/couldn’t move.  Good thing we both can turn although we should have stopped to explain to them how dumb and dangerous that was.

Some seniors with wooden skis and bamboo poles – good to see.

Some beta pics on the Chester Lake Couloir

Full screen slide show is best.
