Sunday 3 February 2019 - A Trip to Lusk Cabin, and the Taylor Lake Loop

Ken went for a 12.5km run. Sue, Helen and I went to P19 (Lac Philippe) for a 22km ski to Lusk Cabin for lunch, returning via the Taylor Lake Loop. Helen probably did about 19km after taking account of to and fro distances taken by me and Sue. We ski a little faster than H.

Only minus 10°C today so no need for my electric gloves that came in handy on Friday. However, it did snow on us for most of the outing, turning to freezing rain just as we finished at around 3pm.

Susan and Roy joined us for the trail 54 section to Lusk and back. They are staying in Chelsea and turned up at Ken and Helen's house (where we stay) yesterday for afternoon tea. That drifted into a ski renovation session for them under Ken's tutelage, then dinner at the pub.

Today's route, for the record:
P19 > #50 > #55 > #54 > Lusk Cabin > #54 > #55 > Taylor Lake Loop > #50 > P19. 22km.

Whilst the car parks were full today, most people were sticking to the easy 'parkway' trails, so the trail to Lusk, and the Taylor Lake Loop, both of which were in excellent condition, were quiet, though I did manage to rather amusingly wipe out in front of a group on the trail to Lusk.

We got a snow fix this weekend too, including a yomp up Shutlingsloe. Macc Forest was a winter wonderland. Enjoy your skiing, looks great.
