Qua Ridge

Stewart – Ridgewalking on Qua.

Saturday was supposed to be a staff and friends day of catskiing at Wildhorse, but that was cancelled due to rain up to 1700m. However the sun was shining, and I figured we could find some decent snow at higher elevations, so took a snowmobile into Qua.

Andrea – Dropping in off Qua Ridge (North Face of Baldy in the background).

After some glorious Spring sunshine on the climb clouds rolled in just as we topped out on the ridgeline. It wasn’t the lightest of powder, but we had smooth soft turns down the steep East facing gully line. With weather coming in we were done by noon in time for a relaxing afternoon in Nelson.
