Trip Report

Back in February 2013, Raf and So managed to negotiate a ski route up Massive Mountain that sounded much more attractive than previous snowshoe or ski trip reports that I'd heard about. I didn't have any GPS tracks or anything to go off and by the time I could finally attempt this trip I knew Raf's ski tracks would be LONG gone - I mean it's almost 2 months later right? Well, as it turns out - WRONG. I put together a few waypoints based on Raf's description and hoped for the best as Wietse and I planned a ski ascent of Massive for a beautiful sunny day on Saturday on March 30 2013.
