Shovelling snow in July!
The snow in higher sections of the course has lingered longer than usual. Several creek crossings along the Hollyburn section of the course has had many of us concerned.
On Saturday morning, a Glenn, Michel, & Andrew headed out to tackle the trail with shovels & ice axes. They managed to tackle the 8′ walls of snow, uncover many of the post-hole traps, & made the creek crossing far more manageable. (Photos posted here.)
In the last week, much of the snow has receded & we expect that much more will disappear before race day.
