As recently as Dec 1, 2018 the MacDonald West permanent closure in Rogers Pass was poached by a group. Therefore I think it's time I reposted these links and resources
This is a public service announcement to try to put together links and information about the Rogers Pass winter permit system. I've vetted the links so know it works.
Folks this permit system is free. It's an effort by ParksCanada MtRevelstoke-Glacier to let us ski cool stuff while not getting blown up by howitzers. How about we show a bit of gratitude and respect it?
Pass this around and encourage people to get informed. As a bonus I've put together a lifetime of useful weather and navigation links/resources
Callum Pettit’s early life was spent in the shadows of his little brother’s pro ski career. While the brothers were a package deal for sponsors, Sean Pettit was the draw. Eventually, Cal and Sean’s sponsorship paths went separate ways, which left Cal figuring out what was next. Which was new sponsors and a blue collar career compared to Sean’s white collar lifestyle. Throughout it all, there was never any drama between Cal and Sean and it’s cool to hear the story from both sides. This podcast is Cal’s version.
