Our resident meteorological guru, Peter Lewis, has prepared this report on the snowfall of winter 2015, the reason for postponement of this year’s E2C event.

In 2015, the huge volume of late-season snowfall forced the postponement of the E2C event.

The travel in the woods on snowshoes has been the slowest I personally have ever travelled in identifying control locations due to the type of snow on the ground at the time we were in the woods. An … Continue reading
