Metal Dome then the bikepark June 28 2008

What a season we've had this year. Terrible for alpine rides or for hikers pining for snow-free treks but good for skiers reluctant to say goodbye to a season. Sean, Mike and I decided to check out an area that we usually don't touch in winter as it's overrun with sleds. Metal Dome is a 2010m peak in the Callaghan Creek drainage area. A snow cat and sledding company run commercial trips in the area. Private sledders piggyback on the easy commercial sled access.







Got back in time for a couple of bikepark laps

Hi LeeL , nice TR.  Read your more detailed report and I have a question, why is the hut such a garbage area? Don't the commercial operations using it clean up?
Nice hat BTW!

Scotsman - I honestly don't know.  Not many tourers go to this area because its popular with sledders.  Maybe the commercial and private sledders don't mind garbage in the alpine?
