I Love Trekkers!

I went for a skin up Granite yesterday morning to try the snow on a different aspect. I was having a good ol' slog up, listening to the Rick Steves podcast in the sun when a screw on the pivoting part of my trekkers decided to fall off and bury itself somewhere on the skin track.  So, not really wanting to turn around on such a beautiful day, I busted out my trusty roll of duct tape and temporarily fixed the problem.  After skinning for two hours and re-duct taping 4 times, I made it to the top. 

New runs on Grey.

And because I'm an idiot, I forgot to turn my gopro on for my run down Southern Belle, which was actually really sick!  There was a very breakable rain crust covered in 5-10cms of pow and I didn't hit anything on the way down. 

I got to the bottom and saw some pals building a little kicker on Indian Flats so I stayed and seshed with them for a bit. 

Vinzenz was killing it.

Jay was killing it.

Deremie cut his ankle cast off they day before and was killing it. (i dont recommend this)

And I sent some backies.

Solid day in the mountains, and it feels great to get back in the air.

Thank you to Vinz and Pat for the jump photos.


I suck at this...

Blogging is difficult.  I apologize for not blogging for the past few weeks...  As you probably know, I'm back in frigid, snowy Rossland.  I've been skiing everyday at Jubilee, and this past Monday I went for a skin up Granite to see how the snow's building up.  I skied down Main run, and even it was pretty sketchy.  There just isn't a base so I was riding on rocks and bushes the whole way down.  Here's some footage I shot, I'm not too happy with it because I used the wrong setting on the gopro, I was skiing super cautiously, and it was pretty foggy but here it is anyways.
