Trip Report

Saturday, January 28th, 2017 was the perfect day to finally knock the easy and short Wawa Ridge ski tour off my list. This tour was perfect for a day when I didn't feel like something bigger and wanted a solo ski. There's nothing really difficult about it and I could have done it in less than 3 hours return except I tried taking a shortcut up through trees off the approach trail and got hopelessly lost for about 20 minutes or so. How does that happen at a bloody ski resort?! ;)

Great photography. I just hiked the ridge for the first time today in the afternoon and it was absolutely amazing. It looks like the left side walking up has an entire ski hill waiting to be made.
