On Grouse, from Malaspina up Larsen, over to The Cut and down McKay. Crumbly ice from ~700m and proper snow from ~900m. Had plenty of grip so didn't need to put on my microspikes.
Larsen and McKay are definitely my favourite trails on Grouse as they're so quiet. Very steep though. My knees didn't seem to suffer too badly on the descent fortunately.

Setting controls for Darkside in LSCR. Control #10 was on a 1950's car, and I somehow managed to run into it... I now have a nice big gash on the front of my thigh. Fortunately none of the competitors made the same mistake.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the course. I was concerned that it was too long, but 4/15 people managed to finish it in the 90 minute time limit. So about right for a "hard" darkside course. Adam smashed it in 57 minutes.

Running on the Hollyburn XC trails. Snow varied from a couple of inches and hard-packed in the west, to a foot deep in the east. I was breaking trail on the eastern trails (Brothers Canyon etc) through both the snow and undergrowth. Tough going.
Very nice out though, and quiet in the east. I expect Hollyburn peak and Black Mountain would have been heaving - I popped over to the downhill area to try to get my season pass printed, and the parking lot was as busy as on a ski day!
