Turned Around

After delaying our planned departure in order to ski the first 4 runs on an unexpected 23cm powder morning at Red, we headed towards Kootenay Pass to begin a 3 day backcountry cabin trip, but found that an avalanche had closed the highway.

We had no information, so filled in some time skiing the Gas pipeline back towards Salmo (actually pretty fun skiing), but eventually had to abandon our ideas of touring in in the dark, and returned to Rossland. We’ll try again tomorrow.
