Classic ski at Sovereign on the way to the airport (again - Meds04 reunion in Costa Rica). I purchased a cross country BC Nordic passport and I've done a very poor job of using it. After today I've only used four free days out of a possible fourteen free days. At least the money goes to a good cause. Very quiet up there today. Snow was fine for classic though slow. Looked a little variable on the skate track.
Backcountry skiing (Tonic) 5:00:00  24.0 km (12:30 / km) +1900m 8:57 / km
A bit of an adventure with Travis. Was not expecting the conditions to be very good but Travis wanted to drop into Begbie Creek which was on my "to ski" list this year. The snow was better than I expected but that was simply due to the fact that we didn't encounter any breakable crust. Rather the issue was schmoo especially lower down. The upper elevations actually skied OK and was interesting checking out a new area. The run had some pretty exciting sections (steep and narrow at times). A number of heli skier tracks already in the gully (pretty burly run they were tackling). The ski out along the creek was pretty comical at times and quite slow due to the snow. I think it is possible to sneak into the basin from lower down. Also worthwhile to remember that the skier's left line at the top of the gully looks a little wider.
Skate ski 1:10:00  14.5 km (4:50 / km) +350m 4:18 / km
Another warm day with some sticky snow. Dog loop with no poles to start then the long climb out to hydro way counter clockwise.
