(Molly welcoming us home to dinner. I love the light at this time of the year.)


Everyone arrived and luggage accounted for last night. The standard late dinner at Boston Pizza, and a good night’s sleep at the Stork Nest Inn. The weather cleared for an uneventful flight into the Chalet. Well not quite uneventful — after takeoff the passenger door on the A-Star popped open twice so we had to return for a quick repair.

An inversion today meant -6° in a Smithers and +1° at the Chalet. Moist snow is forecast to freeze into a thin crust with tonight’s colder temperatures, -10° by breakfast!

So good to be back at my favorite backcountry ski lodge after this past year’s rough ride of surgeries and rehab.
