Today we traveled west of Kicking Horse ski resort, BC and skied some incredible snow in some fantastical terrain.

We hiked up from the chair and dropped a chute that had the best snow I’ve skied all season on the apron.

We hiked up and skied a narrow, steep, long chute that was thrilling.

We hiked up and skied deep mellow hippy powder and it was good.

Then we skied to the car.

Then we drank beer at Whitetooth brewery.

The weather started out mostly clear and sunny, then socked in a bit and it snowed a bit.

Cold in the morning, then warmer in the afternoon when the clouds came in.

Mind-bending terrain here…

Good day.
