Cloudburst Mountain

Jas, Rob and I got out for some fun touring on Cloudburst before the road got too snowy to drive.

Brohm Ridge

Antony and I got out for a day of good weather touring in early November. Unfortunately the snowpack was pretty stiff following some significant rain. Mt Garibaldi makes an appearance Antony – ready for the epic pow! Antony wants ski crampons! DEEP! Corn skiing in November. Great views of the Tantalus Antony and Matt Tantalus…

Mount Baker Heliotrope Ridge

Jeff and I had some great early season turns at Mount Baker! Being the first trip of the season, I was a bit worried I would forget some important piece of equipment (like fresh transceiver batteries the previous year). Sticking with tradition I managed to leave the insoles for my ski boots in a pair…

Mount Murchison

Nathan and I went up to Echo Lake to look for some fun scrambling. We found a lot of bush whacking!

Mount Fee (attempt)

Kelly and I attempted Mt. Fee. We turned back a few meters from the summit, which was loose and unpleasant. I have no interest in trying this again in the summer…

Phil and I headed out for a great scramble up Alpaca off the Coquihalla Highway. Lots of nice open ridges to explore!

Rob and I joined Mary and Lorrie for an ascent of Faceless. Rob and I skied the north face of Faceless to make a great loop. Tons of fun!

Boulder Creek

June 30, 2007 Fighting the end of the season, a small team of skiers headed up Boulder Creek searching for skiable terrain. How far does it make sense to hike in ski boots?    

Sun God

June 20, 2007 Mark and I climbed the north face of Sun God and had a fantastic run down. Unfortunately we didn’t start early enough and spent too much time of the summit, the result of which was the closest call I’ve had in the mountians in some time. A chunck of cornice which had…

Wedge Mountain Northwest Couloir

June 2-3, 2007 Finally! After an aborted attempt and much waiting I finally got to ski Wedge. I headed up with Scott and a contingent of VOCers – Pitor, Christian and Line. Although we didn’t get a hard freeze Saturday night, the couloir was still in excellent ski conditions. Check out Christian’s Photos Day 1…

Mount Rohr

April 21, 2007 More good times in the Duffey with good buddies Rob and Grahame. We explored some of the excellent north face slopes in a basin near Mount Rohr. So many slopes, so little time… About the Author | Contact Cairn | ©2006 Cairn Publishing

Blackcomb-Currie Ski Traverse

April 7-9, 2007 A fantastic trip with great touring partners. Inclement weather provided some challenges along the way but didn’t dampen spirits. Rather than exit the rough exit of Gravell Creek we curled into the northwest face and descend the major gully below the Y Couloir. Good times all round! Day 1 good folk Day…

March 31, 2007 Good times in Steep Creek with a good crew of friends. Another good day on on the Duffey.
