Valhalla Mountain Lodge

Feb 24-March 3 was spent at the unbelievable Valhalla Mountain Lodge, where we had over 140 cm of storm snowfall throughout the week with very little wind. Needless to say the skiing was perfect, day after day after day. The only day was the snow shoveling to keep the lodge and sugar shack from disappearing!

Sunny Powder Day

Back to merely acceptable today. Nothing beats tree skiing on a powder day, but tree skiing in the sun the day after a powder day is right up there. The feathery footed fellow in the last photo warned us of the intense trailbreaking we had ahead of us and wished us good day.  

The Molars

Today we did a short tour up onto the East facing Molars, the backcountry accessed off Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. It was a fun, casual end to the weekend. We started from the old kicking horse lodge at around 10:45 and were back at the car by 2:00!
