More volunteering today, and more wandering trails.

Wind Valley: Trails packed, snowshoes not necessary. Off trail expect 20-50 cm penetration if you break through the crusts, but that only happens about 30% of the time.

Quaite Creek: There's a packed path on the trail leading up from the Trans Canada, but step off this and it's 50 cm+ penetration. That, and the path isn't packed that well, so you can punch through without warning. We made it as far as we went without snowshoes, but they would be helpful.
