Better hiking than skiing. 25cm of snow completely faceted snow on Manitoba
with 4-6 cm surface hoar on top (above trees), 8-15 cm surface below treeline.
Interesting start to the season.
Same story in the trees at Summit Lake.....as you might expect. 15cm surface hoar formations
Interesting start to the 2012-13 snowpack season--Summit Lake
