Days gone by

White Cap Alpine was a fantastic lodge to ski tour out of. It had a real historical feel to it. The lodge was built in the 1950’s and was a hand built log cabin, the person who built it had visions of a huge ski resort at some point.  The mountains surrounding the lodge  were large and very impressive, with plenty of lines to dream about.

 The weather was not conducive to a great photo shoot but we did manage to get some decent deep powder shots as well as a few cliff hucks. I had to manage my time appropriately t make sure I got my 10 000 feet as well as getting some good photos. Somehow I managed 2 days of ten thousand feet. I was dreaming of 3 or 4 but I could only manage 2.

I visited briefly with Tracey and my kids and then took the overnight bus from Vancouver to Revelstoke. Getting home around noon I made a few phone calls and then went out touring around 2.30 on mt-mackenzie. Somehow I skinned my fastest 10 000 of the season  and enjoyed some great dust on crust up off the peak. 4 hours and 40 minutes 10 200 feet.

 Great to be home and looking forward to some more exploration of my home range.
