This afternoon we went tobogganing at Jeff Nye's house who lives near Lumsden in the valley. What an exhausting day! The snow was 1.5-2 feet deep and wouldn't support my weight. Even lying on a toboggan I would sink a bit, so had to push/paddle along with my arms just to get through the slower parts. Then in the end, I had to walk up. This required three rest stops, not only is the walk up-hill, but the sinking in snow makes everything so much more difficult that my heart was racing after only 20 meters. I shot some video, but I doubt it is any good. My energy was elsewhere.
