BC Day 3. BC Ski Day 1.
Hooked up with IF for my first session backcountry skiing for the season before classes on Thursday the 8th of January. Actually, first day skiing for the season, backcountry or anywhere. Really windy and gusty on the flat, but went up the pass to check it out – it would probably be protected in the trees on the mountain anyway. Lots of uncompacted pow though. Pretty tough going in these conditions, but climbed to just below the top of the treeline in 45 minutes. Hard to get speed though so just did the one line. Good enough!
