Knox in Kelowna is good to go!
Very few wet spots.
Dig out those white sunglasses, so you look like a local!

With nocs elections coming up, do the VRT deplorables have a populist candidate we can ramrod into the top position? Is anyone offering Make Nobles Great Again haTs?


Nah. We played with picking some people off but then we realized that it would mean responsibility and we would have nothing to complain about. Hard pass.

As the only place open, does it get quite crowded?

I’ve not yet been to Rose. What’s the recommended trail?

On the near side of the reservoir do RSVP or Bear Bones. I think I like the latter a bit more than the former, it's got a lot of variety.

On the far side do Jabbarocky. I absolutely adore it.

Anyone been on any trails in the last couple of days? So much sun and little rain/snow. Seems like anything facing north still has snow over by Kal, but haven't actually ventured in. Seems like there must be some legit frost in the ground as things are moving slower than I would have expected based on the weather - but I've never been here in spring.

Nocs was suggesting staying off the trails unless it was early morning and still frozen in the last msg I read.

Yeah, I saw a message like that recently, but hope a few days of sun might change things for the better. Basically no skiing or biking right now - gettin' bored!
