Well I've never done one of these events debriefings. So Here It goes.

It was my stag last weekend, so we did a guys weekend trip up the whipsaw and it was fucking epic. [36], We drank tons of beer, ate tons of meat, and even caught a few fish. We were the first one's to do the trip the year as there wasn't a set of tires through the snow yet. I've never done this trail before so I wasn't sure what to expect. There was some snow, a shit ton of mud, and on the first night were we camped a lightning storm all around us on the top of a mountain, it was fucking awesome. In the group there was 1 4runner(Mine), 1 Toyota pickup, 2 Cherokees, 1 YJ, 1 JK(stock), & 2 monster Chev's (1 of which on 44x19.5" boggers. The only vehicles to have any problems where the Chevy's, they're from alberta so they are only used to flat land mud, not the shit we are used to. I posted this link below of a video some one made, so I hope it works. There will be more pictures to come.

Ya I remember driving over there to give the other bachelor some shots of Jager. And no, there are from my understanding a few ways up there. We came in off of the crowsnest hwy, and came out in coalmont. We went up on friday.

We went only where it looked like people had gone in the previous years, We packed out everything we packed in and then any other garbage/empties we found out there. We didn't wreck any nature or cut down any trees.

For future reference you are not supposed to go in any of the mud in Whipsaw because that is supposed be for the cattle in the area. If everyone was to do that it would get shut down so quick.

bit's and pieces. :) There's a picture at the end of the video showing this hill, the pics don't do it justice and next time I'll try it. As well the memorial rock climb is much steeper in person. There are small signs saying whipsaw trail that you need to follow, you could get easily lost before and after the actual trail. Lot's of old mining structures, and lots of gold in the creeks. We panned a bit and always found some. But that lean-to with the fire pit was awesome. Made sure we payed extra attention to that place. Wanna make sure it's still there next time.

And there are hundreds of ponds, lakes, and bodies of water. The only ones we went in were the one's that had well worn in paths, in and out.

Nice pics, looks like a great time.[cheers] And everyone thinks they have the first tracks through, cause often at this time of year the snow melts so fast that the tracks you left yesterday are melted away tomorrow.
