We alternately used our snowshoes and attached them to our packs at different points on today’s hike. At this point we were on a well packed trail and snowshoes weren’t needed, but… if you stepped just to the side of the trail this might happen.
This was a particularly deep post hole, up to mid thigh.
After our lunch we had hoped to take the blue trail loop north of Lac corbeau. However that trail is not frequently used and even wearing snowshoes we were breaking trail with regular 1 to 2 foot drops through the snow.
There was no way we could do the extent of the trail loop that we had hoped which would have included climbing up the ridge to the viewpoint. After trekking 1/2 a kilometre or so we rejoined the main multipurpose trail.
Here I am breaking trail.
