Intermediate Hike Slipper Lake Loop January 26

Commentary and photos by John B.

I led seven hikers on a challenging Thursday hike following the shores of Angel, Chrystal and Slipper Lakes.
The start of the trail was fairly icy but things improved once we got to the bush trail were there was several inches of crusty snow, this made for good footing and no snowshoes. Once on the Slipper Lake Loop Trail we did opt for snowshoes until we reached our lunch spot on the shore of Slipper Lake. The day was overcast but calm and the temperature was on the mild side.
