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.
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?
