Hello America!
I took a fine trip with the ACC last weekend amid beautiful skies, so I thought I'd share. Destination - Fay Hut, just west of the continental divide, in BC (Kootenay National Park).

The way in is along a beautiful, albeit heavily burned, forest valley. The Tokumm Creek fire in 2003 was a scorcher, bathing everything in its path for miles.

A short scrambly bit led to the hut. The old one burnt down in the fire, so they built this palace in 2005. It's possibly the nicest cheap/free hut I've ever been to (not free, but ACC prices are decent - $30 Canadian or so per night each).
Image

The next day, we decided to head up high. We started up through a slightly gnarly gully which opened up into beautiful alpine terrain.
Image

We roped up for the glacier bit and kept going upward. Our objective: the even-higher Neil Colgan hut, just to check it out (the highest permanent structure in Canada, at 2989m).
Image

Hard to beat these views up high.
Image

Image

Good sun-warmed snow and long mellow slopes made for fun meadow-skipping on the way down.
Image

Then we got back to the hut. With the rest of the afternoon free, and not feeling like venturing further that day, I built a kicker to work on my 360s One digger after another suggested that I apparently need to keep working at it....
Yeah, the takeoff was ok, but the landing... (need to look over my shoulder more next time)
Image

We stayed a second night, with much mandolin-playing, scotch drinking, and good times. The way out was somewhat miserable, with horrible breakable crust down to the valley bottom, and then a long schuss out to the cars.
Image


I'll be back.

That's funny, I was under the impression that it was Canadian summer during our winter. Looks like fun, especially the Scotch and mando session.
