And as if the freaking snowstorm wasn't enough, we left when they closed (since we got there like 1:30 :-/ ) and got stuck in a snowbank for a couple hours on highway 26... people around us getting stuck and spinning out one by one regardless of car make or model... after three OPPs, countless people willing to help without the means, tow truck finally arrived and helped us get rid of $60
just got home now, 12:36... we left at 4:30.. can you believe it
oh, first time the go pro went out (which we lost and found), despite conditions I think it filmed it pretty well
awesome so your not the only one that spent some time in a ditch on hwy 26 haha my buddy spun out bad on the 26 right at that S turn before stayner. We spent 45 mins in there waiting for CAA towed us out and we were on the mountain riding by 10:30. Some nice locals stopped to see if we were ok while OPP zoomed right by twice without even stopping which was extremely strange.
