Been doing a bit of BC skiing in and around the area. Did a run on 12/26/2016. All the alpine trails/roads we bike on are snowed in now. Might not be until July/August before they open up at 12k and above. That depends on how much snow is forth coming. March and April can deliver a good dumping. We'll see what happens.

Avalanche danger is high up at Red Mountain Pass which is our first ski choice. A storm blew in with 130 MPH wind gusts which moves a lot of snow. Engineer and Portland offer safer alternatives when it's too risky for Red Mountain Pass.


Skinning up the road.


On a bench cut section.


Coming down.



A short section of our run.

We're using Dynafit bindings and Black Diamond skis, poles and skins. Scarpa boots. Hope you enjoy the outing. Anyone else doing this stuff?

Nice.

I would be careful of a false ledge made of snow, giving way.

It's called a cornice. Plenty of them up in the mountains, but not so much where we were.

I also was happy to solve the Adobe Flash Player problem. Embedded videos now are working fine.
