Rogers Pass

Wow what great ski touring conditions at Rogers Pass this weekend. The avalanche situation is still tricky but the ski quality is fantastic in the alpine and treeline elevations.

On Saturday we skied one of the gun barrels off McGill shoulder, which was pretty fantastic until the lower elevations where the coverage is still not enough for carefree skiing. That didn’t stop Luke and Jake from hitting it hard, bouncing off the snow mushrooms with abandon. The rest of us descended with more caution and eventually made it down to the creek, which is still open but easy to cross. From there we hiked up a few hundred metres for a lap on the beautiful Christiana Glades to wrap up the day.

Not many photos this day as the light was no good and the skiing too good, but here’s one I snapped near the top of our 1100 m climb on Mount McGill:
