Lily Glacier

We skied up onto the Lily Glacier under bright skies. This tour must have one of the best view-to-effort ratios in Rogers Pass.

Once above the icefall we thought about heading over to the Dome-Rampart Col. But the weather was so nice we decided to continue over the high point on the glacier and on towards the north south ridge of Swanzy. Just for kicks. The weather would hold.

No. It wouldn't.



So we skied down the icefall in an absolute white out.

Then it did this.



Oh well.
