This section of the main line off the second peak of Mt Gray is known by local backcountry skiers as James Bay. It’s a lovely open moderate angled run down to Long Squaw (aka Rino’s) that this morning was smooth and blown-in with easy boot-deep turns. That’s Nicole turning it up in the pic, with the North Side of Granite (Cambodia – High Spirits) in the background. It was only recently that I was educated as to the significance of the name James bay. When viewed from Granite, the shape of the open terrain has a striking resemblance to the geography of Hudson and James bays.
