Given the 40 cm of snow that fell in town it was a chance to tour to the Manival valley directly from the front door. There were already a lot of tracks from snow shoers from this AM. I had feared the snow would be crusty but it was ok in the afternoon and in the shade. Heavy powder.
The track to the Manival was almost like a ski piste, a bit narrow to slalom on but well packed by the hoards of snowshoers.
