Grace Lakes

  • Grace Lakes
  • Snowshoeing

January 18, 2015. Sunday's Basic SS FT was canceled due to road conditions (KP's trip report below pertains to Saturday's FT). So two of us instructors who had stayed at the lodge overnight decided to snowshoe up to the lakes. We had to break trail the entire way through 18-24 inches of new snow. No cat track yet, but familiarity with the route made it easy to follow. We went as far as the lake at 4800 feet before turning around.

Even with the new snow, the outlet of the first lake still isn't covered. Tree wells and snow-covered creeks are a definite hazard to watch out for at this time.
