The MacIntyre Range in Winter

IndianFallsClear skies, moderate temperatures, and a recent snowfall have made for very enjoyable conditions in the backcountry.  Saturday afternoon I skied up to Indian Falls and captured this shot of the MacIntyre Range.  The skiing was good, the only issue was a few trees down across the ski trail below Indian Falls.

    I have a shot from that very spot, but there’s no better photographic subject than the snow drift and long shadows of winter (except perhaps ice). Thanks for sharing.

    Brendan, how is the stretch of trail along Phelps Brook for skiing? Are most rocks covered?

    • Phil,

      Most of the rocks are covered. There are a few tricky spots where roots or bog bridging are exposed. There is one large spruce tree down on the ski trail below Indian Falls, along with a few other small trees.
