there isnt much snow out there but still enough for sleds 

quads are good to go out as far as the ice ridge but could be tricky getting across it with quads  sleds are no problem getting past it

Any huts by Granite? I am looking at making the run this weekend.

Gary has one day hut out at Planet Granite. He will likely move a few more over the next few days if the weather allows.

 

A scouting trip today paid off, but conditions were pretty brutal.

 

With extreme cold weather headed our way until the weekend, its tough on men and equipment to make the haul out of Hurkett Cove.

 

There is enough snow to run sleds, just have to weave through the glare ice to get to it. Ice thickness was about 18 inches out by the island. There are several ridges to get by on the trek to the island areas.

 

Fishing is decent all over the bay. I'm going to enjoy a nice feed from Tuesday.

 

stay warm!
