Elise – Lilly Glacier.
I got to ski and see a some new parts of the Province this weekend. On Friday at Rogers Pass we skied the open slopes adjacent to the Lilly Glacier. Not deep, but easy untracked snow.
Then a festive time at a wedding at the Hills Health Ranch in 108 Mile House. Not enough snow to utilize the XC ski-trails or the mini terrain park, but the tubing was fun.
Face-shots – Kamloops style.
We took the back road route from 108 Mile house, and checked out some of the local culture.
Stewart and Lula – Bonney Trees.
Back to Rogers Pass on Monday. Unfortunately I got harassed in the Loop Brook parking area by a proto-fascist goon from the Parks Service for ignoring their expanding violation of my freedom and dignity (aka the new winter permit system), and was compelled to a side trip to Park HQ before hitting the trail. We joined up with crew of keen local gals for a lap to the skiers left of Bonney trees. There’d been perhaps 10cm of new snow up high, and it was snowing heavily for part of the day, so the skiing was most excellent.
Not the ideal way to cross Loop Brook.
