Charlie reminded me of this footage this morning, and I found it over lunch. This is from January, outside of Hope. It was cold (-15ish) but on a sunny day with fresh snow it’s easy to convince yourself your warm enough. We didn’t hike a foot this entire day either. After towing for 7-8 miles up a dirt road we were able to shuttle all 5 of us to the top between Max’s and Charlie’s sleds. The ridge tops were completely stripped bare from the wind with large sustrugi from the rocks. The skiing though, couldn’t have been much better though…

Kim returns from Norway tonight, which is causing me to cut this post short as I have to go buy a padlock for our fridge.  Mikey also bought a new snowmachine, but I don’t have any pictures of it yet. Enjoy the video, if Kim hits another viper I’ll keep everyone informed.
