It’s back…. Finally looks like winter has arrived in the North Shore mountains.
While out on an errand last Friday, I stopped at the corner of Broadway and Granville to grab this view of Crown Mountain with its first coat of snow of this winter. It’s late this year – we had a very mild October, and November hasn’t exactly been cold. Until now, at least. Now the temperature has dropped enough for the rain to fall as snow on the North Shore, which has led to the closure of the Lynn Headwaters backcountry trails and the Grouse Grind for the season. Time to think about snowshoeing again! Hopefully, the crowds won’t be as ridiculous as last year (which put us off going anywhere near the North Shore mountains all winter).
