Snowshoe Scramble Thrift Peak Dec 16, 2022

Pics from Doug – thanks

Snowshoe and scramble Thrift peak on Dec 16 with Doug Lutz.

Picked a direct route up a treed ridge to access main ridge. Crossed river on ice bridge and snowshoed up through trees. Bypassed a fence through an open gate and then heavy work trail breaking in thigh deep sugar snow up to ridge. Ridge was more narrow, treed and corniced than expected and I ran out of motivation but Doug went over to the Lookout.

About 8 km and 885 m RT to lookout

Yamnuska Scramble Oct 9, 2022


Had to take advantage of the beautiful weather and check out the new trail on an old favorite Mount Yamnuska. Overall liked the changes except the first section of the down trail where we should have just used the usual yellow scree. The new switch back trail below the west col was a little slower but was easy on the knees and avoids the rockfall and rock rash risks of running down the scree. Also no excessive wear and tear on boots.
