8812 Bowl

Today we went up to 8812 with Nick, Erica, Steve, and Nick. The weather pretty indifferent with the visibility coming and going. But there was more than enough light to get a sunburn (ouch!). This was likely our last ski outing this season. There's plenty of snow and it just keeps piling up tut the quality is obviously deteriorating. Bikes and boats are beckoning!

Cheops North Bowl

Last weekend Cheops North Bowl was completely tracked out from STS right through to Nicci's Notch. This weekend there wasn't a single track. Sweet.

Video Peak North Face

This was one of the most interesting tours we've done. The stars aligned for us weekend warriors with good stability, good visibility, and plenty of daylight.

Cougar

A strange day. The conditions were great but there was hardly anyone around. We broke trail from Dispatchers Bowl waterfall all the way to Balu Pass. There we dropped over the other side of Balu and found some fun skiing. Great to get out with Martin. Just like old times.

Corbin

Corbin again with Damon and Martin. Damon was just off a week at the Burnie Glacier Chalet and Martin had just arrived from Ontario. The conditions weren't as good as last weekend but it was still pretty good. A very fun place to ski after a short drive from Revelstoke.
