Georgian Bay cave hopping

A perfect day out on the big lake.  Just enough fresh powder to protect the bases, sunny skies and solid ice for days 8)

Looks awesome! Where in Georgian Bay? Also, do you know the ice thickness?

More great pictures.

Must be pretty easy to become disoriented out there. What precautions do you take to be able to find your way back to your start should visibility drop?

Looks like that ice is going to be around for a while.

This is a pretty popular local spot called Giants Tomb. Lots of sled traffic, parts of the bay are actually staked here so hard to get lost. I do run trail forks app sometimes to track distance though. It's easy to smash a lot of k's when things are as good as they have been lately.
The ice conditions are amazing out there right now, so a lot of things are getting put on the back burner to allow for as much playtime as possible Steve ;D
