After initially coordinating plans with Nick Cowan et all a 3-day ski trip to meet over the snows of Garibaldi Provincial Park, we found out there was maybe a little too much new snow for that plan! With much last minute change, 4 of us (Josh, Jon, Jessica, and Myself) headed to my original destination, Mariott Basin (across the valley from the fabled Joffre Group).

Saturday morning we found a sunny sunrise in the blueberry fields of the Frasier Valley. Clouds gathered as we passed the Tantalus, Garibaldi, and Wedge, providing a moody view of the coast range. Halfway up the big hill past Lilooet, we lost our turbo, and our ride slowed to a crawl, but we still got to the trailhead at Cayoosh Pass. Gathering clouds soon built into a full on snowstorm by the time we reached alpine and the warm glow of the hut. Unfortunately the hut was packed and we didnt have reservations (as was expected), so we slept outside in the storm after sharing some evening merriment with our fellow Canadians.

By sunday morning, there was 50cm fresh down to the old crust, and glimpses of blue sky! A few sliding layers were found, so we toured conservatively up a gladed ridge for delightful turns. Views were dramatic of expansive open slopes amidst cloudbreak and sunbreak. The hut was a more spacious the second night, but none the less merry, sharing company with a couple from Calgary and a group from England.

On pres day, the next storm was already in progress - it was pretty much snowing hard the whole day. Another few inches of light pow improved what is usually an icy toboggan run through the forest back to the car. We coasted down the hill back and got our turbo back in Pemberton, powered for the snowy ride back to the Howe Sound Brewing Co, and the USA border.

Photos forthcoming!

Hold ur horses young man!! They'll be comin when they come. Maybe we're just slow because we had no SIC Alpine light. The indoor lighting was superb though.

KFFM!!! Josh did a good job of capturing Kevin's vibrance that evening :)

So I actually had photos online before Kevin did (thus avoiding the dreaded last place) .. but due to the robust 'security' of my new gallery they're a bit tricker to post here, so for now: And yes, I am now the last perspective from Team Nikon (oh wait, jess isn't on this BB so I'll crosspost and add her last ;)


With some prodding I may post a few more from the trip. These tell the story of our travels.

And Eric, I know British doctors aren't quite canadian Doctors but WTH ... if living in Canada .. well, that's pretty close, and if willing to finance a spot for me to live in the Selkirks, that's more than close.
