Trip Report

I picked up Roger at the church in West Van and we met up with Martin on the gondola going up Blackcomb. Martin had plans to climb in Squamish later in the day. The weather was forecast to be hot and sunny. The weatherman got it right. It was! I forgot to bring sunscreen and got a bit of a burn on my face. Conditions were very good despite the warm bluebird weather. No waiting at the lifts, just ski in, get on, ride up.

We were a well matched group, with a similar level of skills, and we were able to feed off each other to get numerous memorable sets of turns that I will be falling asleep recounting for some weeks to come.

Biked up the Garibaldi FSR, in Squamish. At the snow-line (1100 m), I switched to crampons to run. Returned at the Warming Hut / Red Heather shelter, deciding instead to bike the many downhill trails.

Hiked up the Baden Powell route, from Marine Drive in West Vancouver. No snow till after Eagle Bluffs! The route to St. Marks started patchy, with no skinning/skiing possible.
