Whats Wapiaorous like? Super icy?
« on: February 05, 2020, 10:55:42 AM »
Anyone been to Waiporous in the last week? How icy is it? Thinking about taking the family this weekend with Jeep and SxS looking for a super easy run with no drama. Did Margreat lake two weeks ago and things were a bit slippery but not bad. One hill I slid own had 6 trucks go up right after and with each one it seemed to get worse.

You can always do what's left of the original Lost knife, 51 to 93, however any of the new cut lines are going to be sketchy this time of year without chains. 

You can do the lookout too, 154 up to 149,  there's a fork at 153, if you go left (down) it will lead you to Margaret Lake.

I haven't done either of these all year though

I was thinking on getting out for a jaunt.
Want anyone to tag along? What time are you thinking of heading out?

If this happens I could be inclined...always wanting to head out for a spin.

I sort of need to be back by 6ish so early departure would be preferable

Anywho myself and the old lady will be in the Jeep and Eric and possibly his better half will be in a SxS. Going to be at the McDonald's in Cochrane for 9am. Weather's looking not terrible <1cm of snow and -4. Will shoot to be back around mid/late afternoon.

Eric's out. SxS needs some unexpected work. I'd still be inclined to go if other people were going but seeing as nobody has posted I'll say thats a no go.

Sorry the family opted for a late night out last night so we decided to cancel it. Its dumping snow pretty good here in Cochrane right now.
