A XC tour with some fun trail skiing I like to do before the road is snowed in. Snow on road started 3500' and was 8" deep (WET) at Eleanor Creek where we left the Troooper and headed south up thru the trees on skis from the start. Lots of downed trees so sans ski would have been faster. 12" of total snow in Grand Park with the top 5" of the drier type. Jeff, James and myself skied over to far South side and "high point". Good workout and if you hunt around minimum turns can be found up there. Big hoot is skiing trail back down. Light snow all day and very light winds.
