On Sunday we decided to go for a ski out the road, up Herbert River. There wasn't a ton of snow but the ice was pretty solid in most places in the river bed. It wasn't a fast ski, but was pretty nice with the snow continually falling all day. We made to the open area just before Herbert Glacier when we decided to turn around and give Stout a break. Much of the snow had a breakable crust on top, making it a hard day on the dog. The rest of the ski was on hard river ice with an inch or so of soft new snow.
|Ont he way out. You just had to dodge the river channels. No one got wet. Not even Stout!|
|Biting snow flakes.|

|The trickiest part of the ski tour. Hillary crosses the logs with style.|
|It started snowing harder on the way back, making the ice a nice ski.|
|Stout hasn't moved much since getting home|
