It is very hard to believe that I was hiking just 10 days ago and the condition was good for hiking. Today, the activity of choice is definitely skiing and close to mid winter condition. I decided to do my annual trot up Fortune Parkway from P10. I need to build up my endurance and get my ski legs in shape before I join my back-country ski buddies. Fortune Parkway was in excellent shape, the depth of the track was good and my poles were not hitting the pavement. Burma was track set by skiers and I may have found 1 rock. There was one (maybe two) skiers ahead of me on #21 (that is since the snow last night). I decided to try my luck across the cattail marsh area on #21 and found water. The usually wet area on #18 is still open. Hidden Valley entrance from #18 is hard to find as I never did find it. I went back via Khyber Pass and no complaint there. My legs were tired by the time I got back to the car.
Route: P10 – Fortune PW – #3 – #21 – #18 – Ridge – Fortune PW – P10
