Up into the Sun

IMG_0527

A bit of a strange winter we’re having.  A week of snow, now nothing but sunshine and inversions as far as anyone’s forecasting. Jordy and I busted out the snowmobiles for the first time this season, hoping to find a bit powder in the Valhallas.  Jordy’s sled died (never to ride again) only 2km in, so we ended up breaking trail while towing, and I got stuck in a pit of facets, but we eventually got onto our skis. The snow was mostly wind packed at upper elevations, but the views were incredible, we explored a bit, and ended with a couple of runs on a protected pitch of creamy pow. Nice to be out walking.

    So how did you find the skiing in the Milton Creek drainage? This was your second day ski touring in this zone, right?
