Great travel conditions.


Elise – stoked on crust.

Thinking we’d find some decent snow above 1800m, we went for a tour at Kootenay Pass on Friday. The crust made for fast and easy travelling on a long approach, but other than the first few turns off the (2100m) ridge, it was pretty firm everywhere.


South facing slope, around 1900m.



The sun was shining, and we got to view lots of recent avalanche activity from a distance.


Between the surprisingly decent crust skiing, candling, open ditch jumping on the ski-out, and tail-gate beer swilling, we had a  fun day in pretty marginal conditions.
