Pete Golden taking the icicle cliff variation left of Roxanne.
Only 5cm of new snow overnight, but the sun was shining, with no wind, and I hooked up with a crew of happy rippers to ski and share many of my favorite steep lines and drops.
We’ve all seen the huge chain link fence that Teck-Cominco erected right above the intersection of Kirkup Ave and the Highway to Red, designed to prevent skiing on that particular slope. I’m co-operating with Teck Cominco to try to re-open the area to the public as part of my summer trails job, but I’m not a big fan of the fence, so I was amused to see our resident Scandinavian free-skiers building a jump over it a little while back. They’ve posted a video of the whole episode on Youtube.
