Mount English

Mount English in mid June is typically a hike and scramble with a bit of snow. This year we brought the skis expecting to ski from the car.

We guessed correctly for once. This is the normal camping spot about 200m up the road from where we parked the cars.

I can't exactly say that we were rewarded for our efforts with fantastic spring turns. The mist was right down and it rained consistently throughout the day, and climbing up through the trees was a little grim.

We booted up to the col and called it a day.

And ski we did.

And now, officially, absolutely, we are done skiing for this season. Unless there's still a bit of snow below Hermit Meadows over Canada Day...
