Francois and the gals, Mt Lyle in the background – Skiing Mt Brennan is one of the truly classic ski tours in the Kootenays. It’s a massive 6000′ vertical from Retallack to the summit, but with good visiblity and easy trail breaking it was about 5hrs for the climb.
Nadine checking out the Goat Range – On the 2902 m summit we were blessed with sunny breaks, light wind and incredible views in every direction.
Francois – It was a little wind packed on the top, and sun affected down low, but in between we enjoyed endless open powder slopes in perfect condition.
Nadine – It was a joy to get into the big mountains again. The only downside was the discovery that Stellar Heli Skiing have incorporated the area into their tenure, and are now operating in this traditional backcountry skiing destination.
