Today was a pre-ski for Steve Kelly. He wants to introduce his Saturday group to a gentle backcountry ski. This trip was based on one done by John Vincent.
Six of us started from P9 and visited Manatee Pond, Incisor Pond, Highway 5 Pond, Molnar Pond, Eel Pond (I think), back to Manatee Pond from another entrance, and back to P9 via John’s Trail, and O’Rourke Trail. It was a very pleasant day with nice temperature, not too much wind, and lots of white fluffy stuff. The snow reached about mid calf and breaking trail was no problem.
