Yesterday was a banner day at Kicking Horse ski resort in British Columbia, Canada.
Deep snow on the southern aspects, untracked snow everywhere, very few people out, good visibility (for the most part), and a horrible amount of faceshots…
We started the day skiing northern aspects and they were good.
Then we switched to southern aspect due to the wind direction having had blown snow onto southern aspects (thanks for this advice, Todd) and the skiing was excellent.
Deep snow, faceshots, bottomless.
After two terrific funs under the gondola, they opened Terminator 1 and we charged up in the first group and were rewarded with fresh lines, fresh landings, and even more intense faceshots.
The lower trees below T1 were very deep, pillowy, mossy, and yes, faceshoty. Felt like I was in BC…
We did another T1, hucked more cliffs, got more faceshots, skied more BC-ey trees, laughed a lot, clicked poles a lot, smiled a lot, and called it a day.
We skied 9am-3pm and had an absolute ball with nearly no one out.
Forecast looks good!
Special Thanks to Andrew Chad for the amazing photos and patience and to Todd Mansfield for the excellent guiding.
