A big family outing to Illal Meadows off the Coquihalla.
Been more than a few years since I’ve been up Slalok. Great trip with Grahame and John.
Headed up to Wedgemount Lake with a great crew and headed up the Rethel Couloir. Conditions were firm, far from optimal. We made it up to a stone’s throw from the summit, then made our way home. Good times in the Coast Mountains!
Wandered over to Wedge from Blackcomb before the new snowfall began. Pretty straightforward and good snow for the descent. Tried an exit out Rethel Creek. Was fine up high but deteriorated significantly lower down. I wouldn’t recommend travel on the south side of the creek.

Vista chute is filled in. Spearhead Glacier is in considerably better shape. The access from VistaBowl was quite…
More great touring off Whistler.
Opening weekend for Blackcomb = backcountry fun! Headed out past Decker towards Pattison. Slopes were wind affected up high but there were good turns to be had. Lots of open crevasses. I was pleased to need my headlamp.
More good time in the Blackcomb backcountry on opening weekend. Used a rope crossing Spearhead Glacier from Vista Bowl – some open slots there as of last weekend.
