We made the trek into the Glacier Circle Cabin over the Victoria Day long weekend with Nick. There was just enough snow remaining for us to ski right from the car. But only just.
We started out under clear skies but the visibility crapped out by midday.
We chose the Macoun ramp route for the descent into the circle. This photo shows the entrance into ramp route with the Witch Tower route across the other side of the valley.
After 9.5 hours we finally set eyes on the old cabin for the first time in five years. It was in good shape except for a few missing shingles on the roof and we sorely missed a hand saw to cut wood for the stove.
The next day we had a relaxing morning before heading out to look around. Glacier Circle is a stunning place to be.
We retuned via the Witch Tower route the next morning under beautiful clear skies giving a us a great view back to where we'd been. The cabin is located in the trees at centre right in this photo.
Once over the glacier we were forced to start hiking through the rockier parts of the trail.
But not for too long.
