A short end of winter getaway for @toesalad and myself. Originally we thought we'd go backcountry skiing but with the warming days and advancing season we anticipate that snowshoeing is more feasible. So we've chosen our hut rental and proposed hiking routes accordingly.
We're staying at the brand new Sautauriski hut (so new it's not even on the maps). The SEPAQ "huts" can be rented by the bed, so you don't have to pay for an entire cabin, which is great if you're traveling solo or duo. As a trio it's probably just as economical to rent a cabin.
We'll be exploring the nearby area's summits and river valleys. A lot of the park is inaccessible in winter, we'll be staying near the park entry where trails and accommodations are accessible and maintained.

Partners. A quick selfie while @toesalad strains snowmelt through a cloth to remove big chunks of detritus. The snow looks so clean when you scoop it but has a lot of plant particles in it. Let’s hope it’s mostly plant material!
After straining we’ll boil for tea or cooking or we’ll filter for our water bladders.
