Mighty fun trip to Kaleetan today.  VERY bad visibility the whole day, and raining pretty hard when I got back at the car at 1 pm.

The couloir up to the ridge of Kaleetan is protected by a couple of medium size cornices, I was lucky not to see them until I was right under them, did not dare come back that way nor could I see down the SE face so skied from summit down SW to about 4500 and then toured E towards Melakwa Lake.  Decent alternative.
Atomic Kailas - tele mounted, like them!

I tele, well...most of the time  Embarrassed. I seem to be throwing in more downhill turns of late.

I love the Kailas. A very fun ski that does surprisingly well on ice, corn, powder and everything between. A great all around ski in my opinion.
