Mt Brennan Corn

Ross and Melly.

After 2 weeks of surf, sun and chilling out in Mexico, I’m back in the Kootanays, and skiing corn on Mt Brennan seemed a good idea. We crashed at Stan’s in Rettalack, planning on an early start.  With ideal conditions, it was a popular plan, with at least 16 people on the mountain yesterday. Firm snow made for easy travelling (definitely the last day the road will be skiable), though a little challenging on the firm steeper sections. We summited at 10.30am, waited perhaps 45mins, and timed our descent perfectly. 6000ft of smooth silky corn skiing, ending back at Stan’s with beers in the sun.  Here’s a short vid of Cam and Stan on the descent.
