The Strathcona Park Wilderness Centre at Paradise Meadows has been ‘winterized’ ! The Strathcona Wilderness Institute directors have installed plywood on the front & side railings, to prevent snow build-up on the decks & balcony over the winter.
The Centre building will be rented on weekends for Avalanche Skills Training with Island Alpine Guides. The space is available for rent by other groups as well – check out the details here.
On another note, bear tracks have been observed in the snow around Mt Washington’s Raven Lodge – the bears should be hibernating soon though!
