Asulkan to Loop Brook via Dome Col

Dropped a car at Loop Brook and headed up the Asulkan Valley on a hazy, sultry morning.

Fresh snow made for heavy trail breaking and sticky skins.

We made our way up onto The Cleaver.

And had some great views towards Mt. Fox and the other peaks in the Dawson Group.

Before finally arriving at the col.

With a view into both the valley we'd just came up and the one we were about to go down in.

Not a single shot of the ski down. Oh well. This was the route.

Albert Creek

This was an exploration day near Albert Creek a.k.a. an "it's too crappy to drive all the way to the pass" day.

We got some exercise and the sun did come out eventually.

And we even found a few turns here and there.

Lily Glacier

Up Loop Brook and onto the moraine below the Lily.

Still very wintry up here.

Steve forgot his lunch and had to improvise with breakfast cereal.

Thanks for the Best Uptrack Ever whoever you were.

Blowing like crazy just below The Dome so we gave the col a miss and headed straight down in fading visibility.

Great skiing.
