Heli Skiing at CMH

Laying tracks on a run called Buffalo in the Selkirks.

After what seems like an entire season without much snow, Winter has finally decided to show up. A day late and a buck short, but atleast it tried. With so many buried weak layers in the snowpack, I'm not expecting much in the way of spring skiing. But hey, you never know. That said, it won't matter much what the snow is doing when I'm getting my ass handed to me on a dusty platter in Splittsville Utah.

In the meantime, here are some shots from the past week and a half at CMH Bobbie Burns.

Matty D snapped this shot of me a few months back. It was a really weird day where everything was black and white except for my jacket. I have never seen this phenomenon before or since.

More schussing in the Selkirks.

Snow safety checks out a meaty size 2 that was remotely triggered by a group above. The crown was as tall as 1.3 meters and the bed surface was V, 10mm. Spooky.

Going with gravity on Snuffalo in the Selkirks.

Skiing in the Purcells on a run called Hasta la Vista. We bombed this run before skiing it and got a couple of good results.
