2015 BC Day 15 = No Name Peak

Started hiking at 5:30am with IF back on Tuesday March the 24th after sleeping in the car the night before. With snow on the forecast the last two nights, had to get out and see if I could get me some. Everything was totally covered up and it looked good, but there was a slight crust with only occasional patches of perfection. Was hoping for more of that skier’s left. Hiked 45 minutes above the treeline to the bottom of the top bowl. Thought about going to the top, but it just looked cold and windy up there. It was only 6:15am at this point, after all. Anyway, the riding. Didn’t really deliver so just went with the one line today. Oh well…

2015 BC Day 14 = No Name Peak

Started hiking at 7:30am back on Thursday March the 19th after sleeping in the car the night before. Was totally expecting the powder from Sunday to have burnt off and I wasn’t wrong. A sneaky dump of snow would have been nice though. So yeah, it was fairly firm. The weather was pretty nice though. Almost sunny, high cloud and little wind. Hiked to the top with IF in one hour ten. Probably back on the snowboard for the rest of the season. Nice morning to be in the mountains!

2015 BC Day 13 = White Noise

Started hiking here at 6:30am with MHM back on Sunday March 15th. Bluebird, no wind and deeeeep POW. This, of course, made the hike tough as we were first on the mountain. Got to the top in one and a half hours. Pretty hard work though. For me anyway. I ended up breaking most of the trail!

Then strapped into the snowboard for the first time in over two months. Just too much skiing recently! Was a little cautious at first, but the first run down was, as expected, totally sweet. Hiked back up again for another in 40 minutes. The second was even better!

The hot dog didn’t quite compare to the snowboarding, but it was still good enough…
