Fam long weekend in Temagami bush
« on: February 27, 2019, 11:37:46 am »
Here are some pics from our Love/Fam long weekend in Temagami.  Another great trip for the books with amazing weather, great memories and 3 days of solid BC skiing.  We re-visited some of the trails we used to day ski before getting into wintercamping, the forgotten Smoothwater ski trails 8) 

Perfect travel day, just enough fresh powder to cover up sled tracks.  Trying out my modified Paris sled, extra 2.5ft of length allowed me to spread out the load and keep the COG nice and low.  Perfect fit for our needs.





Familiar camp spot, out of the way of winds and 20cm of predicted accumulation




Haven’t seen this much snow around these parts in years, bottoming out my 165cm ski poles in the bush.  Lakes were full of slush, glad we basecamped and didn’t have to fight the slushmonsters everyday :o ;D








The vanishing trails :(






There is a line there somewhere ;D


The beauty of the Temagami bush is on full display out there right now








Happy travels folks, and keep your fingers crossed the rodent was wrong with his prediction this year ::) :o ;D

Awesome pics!  I'd love to get up to Temagami sometime in the winter...As Algonquin gets busier all times of year it may be my winter camping destination of the future.  Thanks for sharing!

Looks like you had a great time.

Smooth water was our first intro to to Canadian winters. There was a lot of snow when we stayed there 13 years ago too.

Thanks Gents. Yup it's been about 8 years since I've seen this much snowpack up there. We try to do at least two tours in the area per season.  The trails need a good trim, wish I had more free time on my hands ;D
