Driving out from Saskatoon tonight. Just wondering where would be the best on Sunday? Lucille or Renshaw? Thanks in advance.

I’m pretty familiar with both. Been back to larva in Lucille, but probably the group we are with, butterfly would be the farthest we would want to go. Renshaw I’ve went back to spirit lake but have never took the short cut into the ant hills. Any info would help. Thx

Depends on snow but Lucille usually beat up by Sunday so if weather good and trail groomer we do even half days at Renshaw.
Just so big and lots of pockets to hit as you venture.
But Lucille is a ton of fun all day with a fresh dump.

Just returned home from two days out at Renshaw. 8 to 12" of fresh snow from the snowfall they had last tuesday. Maybe 1" overnight on friday. Most areas were decent enough with a bit more back into the anthills. Average 165 cm base. Lots of lines still to be had the farther you go. Overall pretty decent. More snow in the forcast starting sunday for the rest of the week.

We still had to jump the creek coming out of anthills a week ago. Can never go wrong at the Renshaw.

rode Renshaw Friday and sat, starting to get tracked out unless you get a ways from the cabin or they get some snow, like said we had to jump the creeks in and out of the anthills, but it was good back there though. my guess would be luccile would be tracked out.

Went to Renshaw all three days. Found great snow and visibility over the saddle on Sunday. Snow and poor visibility on Monday and today. Still found good snow but hard to see. It was a little dicey getting back over the saddle. Great trip over all. Had to pull out my buddies Alpha as the rear axel gave out.

Need to upgrade the long bolt. It stretches and comes loose.
