This was my first trip Kimmirut/Iqaluit(Apex) this year. The trail was fairly smooth except for the plateau area where it was rough. Just before getting on the plateau we had to shovel to continue. Before the third cabin we got into a tight spot , must be very careful, big drops on both side of trail. The Soper has some slushy spots (Mount Joy), broke thru the ice close to Mount Joy and near the Group Cabin. Good trip over all.
