Daryl has been asking me to take her out on an overnight ski trip for over a year now, so we scored a ride with some friends heading to Whistler and made it happen! After spending hours getting backcountry passes and trying to make our way out of the Whistler resort, we finally skied off of Flute Mtn, over Oboe to Cowboy Ridge. We made camp here, rather than down in the Russet Lake basin, and enjoyed a spectacular sunset. Did a couple laps the next morning before breaking camp and heading back to Whistler. This is a very classic backcountry tour (basically the final third of the Spearhead Traverse) for a reason: by taking a lift up, you save yourself an aweful lot of skinning; there's a free hut at Russet Lake, numerous options for ripping up the fresh snow. Plus there are a number of respectable peaks within striking distance from the hut: Overlord, Fissile, Wirlwind, etc. Anyways, the photos are here: www.astro.washington.edu/cowan/trip_rep ... l_bumps_08
