Lynn Kennen and I showed up at Kicking Horse ski resort in British Columbia, Canada at around 8:45am yesterday and ended up on the 4th gondola with our new friends Brad and Meagan.
Brad and Meagan showed us 2 great runs to start the day – one off CPR ridge and one into Feuz Bowl were wind buffed, powdery, and steep.
Back up the gondola and we saw the Terminator 1 hike was open. Lynn and I charged up there, clicked, in and raced down the south side of the peak in 18-inches of perfect powder crossing no tracks. It was a dream…
The lower zones were powdery and fun as well. It’s a 4,000-vertical-foot powder run right back to the base of the gondy.
Back up Terminator 1. Another killer powder run.
Back up Terminator 1 a third time. A few more tracks, but still good.
Back up and over to Whitewall this time. Whitewall was steep and a bit chewed up by the time we got there but still damn fun.
The weather was sunny-ish, but not full on sun. Great visibility in the morning, then the light got a bit flatter in the afternoon.
Apres skiing we headed to the River House in Golden, B.C. and got a good taste of the best dive bar in town via the Halifax Aurevoir pita wrap thingy and it was good.
Today, they opened the north side of Terminator 2 and the north side of Terminator 1 and both were completely fresh.
The forecast is looking GOOD this week.
