2021 (January) – Mount Morice
As we are experiencing one of mildest winters in Calgary, that hasn’t been the case on the mountain-top sites in northern BC. The ice and frost on the towers look amazing but reminds us of how extreme the conditions are and the reason for over-engineering the structures.
We have 3 of the 4 sites in full operation but not without a few bumps along the way. One of the sites had a Pine Martin (extremely cute animal) access the shelter through a vent and proceeded to chew some of the cabling inside that caused the site to go down temporarily. The Mount Morice site has seen an unusual amount of ice and frost, which has made for additional maintenance trips to remove the build-up.
