A quick Sunday trip to the Coquihalla where we skied Markhor again.

Once everything fills in there's some good terrain up here. The north aspect helps.

We had a few good turns and enjoyed the feeling of cold winter again.

It felt distinctly spring-like back at the road.

Lookout Col

We slogged our way up to Lookout Col again to salvage some skiing on a pretty crappy weather day.

Great weather! Somewhere. Could not see a thing on the ski down from the col.

Afterwards we skied onto and above the prominent moraine on skiers left below Glacier Crest. It was the first time we'd been over there and found it quite fun.

Definitely worth another visit.

We came across the Outdoor Research tiny house in the parking lot. Check out the shower! Brrr.

Campbell Icefields

We arrived at at Campbell Icefields on a cold, cold morning in early March.

Overnight a big wind storm had sculpted the fine power snow into hard packed crust as far as the eye could see.

Thankfully it started snowing that night and didn't let up for days. Over the week we got something 1.5 metres of snow. Temperatures hovering around -20 made for some incredible powder skiing below tree line. Amazing stuff.

We said goodbye to the bottomless powder as temperatures warmed up later in the week.

Good food.

Good music.

And good times until far too soon it was time to pack up and head for home.

It took two attempts but finally on the second day of trying we bid adieu to Campbell Icefields for another few years at least.
