Ascent Trip Report

After eating a snack and talking about our recent experiences, we started to make our way back towards camp. People wanted to ski a bit so we followed a ridge with interesting slopes. A few launched down and I walked behind to catch up. Soon I met our tracks from coming in and I followed it all the way to the small pond just before our camp. From there I decided to go up montagne de l'Accueil. It was only a short hike up and down to the camp.

Then it was time to work a little bit on our camp to make it prettier.
