Trip Report

The trip was amazing. Conditions were sunny on the day in and light snow on return trip back. Snowshoeing across the lake was further than we thought. It is approximately 6km. The hut is quaint. Another group of 3 were there as well. The hut was cold. There is no woodstove and the small heater would not work, even though we brougt up lots of white gas,  In the night it was -8 in the hut and all our shoes and clothing was frozen in the morning. Despite that we had a great time! it was full moon and the views were spectacular. The trail was hard pack and so we didn't need to use snowshoes that much. Beautiful trip, I just need a warmer sleeping bag!
