March 9-15, 2014, Kootenay Pass, Avy Ops 1 Course
« on: 03/15/14, 08:45 PM »

Took my avy ops 1 course this week at Kootenay Pass. Did a lot of digging and taking weather obs, was pretty fun.

Conditions ranged from terrible breakable crust at the start of the week to 30cm on top of the crust when I left today. Skiing will probably be superb there tomorrow. Feb 10th layer present on all aspects, we found it to be most reactive on south facing thin slopes.

"As we all know, the true driving force behind every early morning wake up is not necessarily safety, but the overpowering drive to be sitting on a patio by 1 pm, intoxicated, and spraying loudly about the morning's adventure."
