OK Mountain

With strong northerly winds having scoured many of the usual quality lines in the Rossland Range, a cold (-14 degrees C), clear, windless  morning called for some alternative thinking. The East facing main chute of OK mountain (visible from the highway down to Patterson) often delivers poor quality snow due to it’s sunny exposure and low elevation, but with the recent long run of cold temperatures, it was in perfect condition today. We skied powder down through the top half of the chute, then traversed left when the alder got too thick, and found a clean line and fields of creamy snow down an open ridge down to the car waiting on the Cascade highway. Here’s some video of Cam on the lower fields.
