A quick trip to Rogers Pass. We skied behind the hotel with about 4000 other people who were also taking advantage of the great early season conditions. Most people headed up towards Ursus Trees or 8812 Bowl so we went straight to Balu Pass where it was quieter.
We climbed up towards Balu Peak and then dropped off the ridge into 8812. Good run.
Steve told us that this year he will be trying to extend the life of his skis by only using the back half until mid season, at which point he'll switch to the front half.
We also checked out the gullies left and right of the pass.
And again found some good skiing despite the poor visibility.
It's always surprising how good the skiing is in November.
