January 18, 2010: Mt Hector, Banff National Park.
« on: 01/18/10, 11:52 PM »

We made a quick trip to the Rockies and had the pleasure to ski Mt Hector. 

Jason and Kyle skin up the Hector Glacier.




Kyle descends from a sub-summit of Mt Hector on his snowboard.


Loving the parka.


Kyle snowboard powder Hector Glacier.


Kyle snowboard sunshine.


Switch to the road.


Oh, how I long to caress more choss, hear more whoompfs, and further deface the bases and edges of my skis!

Thanks for sharing the wonderful trip, fellas.

Great job guys, wonderful photos. It makes me very jealous, and a bit irritated that I didn't really get into touring until I left that part of the world Wink

Again, another great TR Jason.  Those shots, like the Can. Rockies, were in a league of their own.  You definitely managed to catch the exposure well!
