Kootenay Pow!

published Aug 2011 - 384 views

Got the chance to drive up to British Columbia and ski endless amounts of untouched Kootenay pow just before New Year's. We drove through Nelson and pulled off to a trailhead a few km from Retallack Lodge. Then we were snowmobiled in 12 km off the highway to a sick little hut with just enough room for the 10 of us. The friendly Canuck sledheads accepted a fair compensation of 40 bones each and a healthy amount of whiskey.

The first night it snowed 16cm on top of already bottomless sugar, and then it went bluebird for the rest of our 4 day trip. We skied conservatively since we were a little while from the highway and on touring bindings, but I was definitely stoked to earn some turns with a good crew and taste the glorious Kootenay freshies.
