Week of the Snowpocolypse - Coastal BC
« on: 12/24/12, 03:10 PM »

The Powder maker was in full effect in Coastal BC this week. I even found myself riding lifts on the Northshore. 30cms of blower at Cypress was awesome felt like Cat skiing. The snow pack is growing pretty large with almost 250cms in most spots even the local early morning spots are good to go!

Mid week I hit the Duffey Pat. The snow was hammering all the way from Vancouver to Pemberton. 20cms was forecasted but we got more like 40cms.

The bigger than expected storm produced these atypical conditions

Stability was good on low angle slopes but we heard some big avi's running on some big terrain in the drainage.

Sunday was a quick trip to the Coquihalla to scout a new area. The sun came out and I was able to find a fun little chute.

Running now 7 days straight of making turns and the streak looks to be intact for the next few days!

I really enjoyed your website,  I'm a regular up at Baker with alot of years spent in the backcountry.  I'm starting to explore across the border and find your postings helpful.  Do you ever go up to the huts around Pemberton?  I would love to get some insiders info.


If you're not falling down you're not skiing enough.
