Default Grassy and Bojo Snowshoe (March 19)

Made a last minute decision to explore this area on Friday, putting out the call to a couple of other hiking partners seeing as the weather outlook had improved somewhat for Saturday. We started from Strawberry Flat parking lot, went along the Poland Lake Trail, but eventually headed up toward Grassy Ridge when we got to the ski slope. Had a mixture of sunshine and lazy snowfall simultaneously on top of Grassy for about 15 minutes. Broke a trail over to Bojo where again the wind was nearly non-existent and the temperature was relatively warm. The snow was heavy on the snowshoes and was balling up underneath them, adding to the workload on the ascending portion of the day. After lunch, we schooted down from Bojo summit directly to the Poland Lake trail where we returned in a loop fashion on this well used super highway (as compared to what we had on the way up). Made a quick decent down the ski runs and walked on the road back to the Strawberry Flats parking lot for around 7 hours at a moderate pace, with lots of time for photo-ops and lounging around the peaks. Cumulative elevation gain was around 800 meters, 16 km. There were some interesting snow features on the north summit side of Bojo as seen in the photos and video below. A great day out in the snow followed by an equally mouth-watering Great Bear (HUGE) Burger and a Guinness chaser courtesy of the lodge.

Can't take the credit for all those vids unfortunately. That honor would go to the fella in the red. (:
