1/7 Womb on Mcpherson, Revy
1/8 Mt. Coursier, Revy Natl
1/9 Mt. Baldy, Oliver

Great skiing in the BC interior right now to the south and west of Revelstoke. Rogers Pass is hurting for snow with variable surfaces on almost all aspects at elevation. Low elevations were skiing good in the pass where they were untracked. Better skiing to be had in the Monashees and southwestern mountains of the selkirks with more recent snow there covering the variable surfaces but still not enough to create significant hazards in the areas I have traveled. As for Revy Natl low snow makes for somewhat difficult travel up Coursier Creek till 1000m. Travel up Saint Cyr Creek looks H anus with 20cm to 0cm of snow at highway elevation. Mt. Baldy is currently a closed ski resort which makes for great touring potential if you dont mind a little brap smoke blowing towards you from time to time. Great glading on the hill however makes the brap mobiles a non issue for the most part.

If you happen to go to Mt Coursier before the high pressure ends dont laugh at our tracks off the summit... we got caught in a whiteout 30min before we topped out ):

"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."
