    A fat bike would probably be a lot of fun.

    Also, carpool location is Our Lady of the Assumption School parking lot. Let me know if you have any trouble finding it!

    Oh and a quick note regarding avi gear – there is no real avi risk on the way to or from the hut. If you ambitions of really exploring the local area, you could bring your kit, but I don’t know that I will personally bother as I don’t see myself entering any terrain steep enough to slide that has any snow loading. There’s lots of hiking to do without messing with avi slopes.

    Has anyone found any good beta on the conditions up to or around Elk Lakes?

    I’m going to take a salad (caesar or something more mediterranean) along for the pot luck, that will balance out the baileys consumption..

    I’ll probably bring some cheese and crackers, unless there is something else lacking we need?

    We are bringing home made cookies courtesy of my wife, some nanaimo bars, and date squares all for dessert.

    Likely leaving avi gear in car as well. Would be nice if the hike in could be skinned though.

    Hey Alana, Kiran spoke to Kananaskis today and they were saying that it was pretty thin out there. As in we’re walking. They’re estimating snow coverage at the pass at only a few centimetres – though they haven’t been out there. I’m going to hike in personally.

    I am fat biking in 🙂

    Thanks Phil, I was thinking about taking my bike but I think I’ll join team hike!

    See y’all soon!
