2 PM

Backcountry skiing (100eight/Findr) 1:00:00 [2] 3.0 km (20:00 / km) +250m 14:07 / km

Sunrise Lodge ski trip with Stuart, Eiri, Rob, Pete and my dad. Group was supposed to be bigger but shrunk for various reasons. Small group was very nice - wish all trips were this size. Sue was our cook and Georgia was our custodian. HS was 210cm with a few storm layers down 35cm/70cm that were settling and deep PWL at 100cm that was dormant. Big snowfall Thursday night so not many tracks to deal with.

Funny transfer day as we were the first flight but weather socked in immediately (helicopter was lucky to actually make it out). We flew in via Mayvill which was great from a beta aspect. It took 4-5 hours before the rest of the gear and Sue/Georgia/Pete flew in. Eventually got out for a short ski up to Corn Peak. The light was rather flat so hard to see the undulations of the terrain.

Wednesday Jan 22 #

Strength 1:00:00 [1]

Moved the front and back snow piles. Hopefully get some snowpack settlement with the forecast rain. Running out of space to put the snow.
3 PM

Run 55:00 [1] 8.0 km (6:53 / km) +2m 6:52 / km
shoes: Columbia Outdry

Greenbelt with Milo. The warmer temperatures mean the groomed trail is in better shape but still can sink in if you push off too hard so a fairly easy pace trying to stay light on my feet. The river was low so ran on the beach for a little which was a refreshing change from the snow.

Backcountry skiing (Findr) 4:00:00 [3] 13.0 km (18:28 / km) +1385m 12:03 / km

Mt Griffin with Stuart, Brook and Jordan. Perhaps a day or two late as the wind and warm weather (warmer than I expected today) played some havoc on the snow. This zone has been on my to do list for a while. The low starting elevation (550m) means that a deep snow year and cool temperatures are ideal. The climbing line we took through the forest and cutblocks was fine other than a crux just below the ridge crest. Had to back track and go left. One downside of this zone is that you can sled ski most of the runs - four snowboarders dropped in on us as we neared the top. The glades around our uptrack looked to be pretty fun. Skiers left of our uptrack would drop you into a new cutblock that looked like a nice smooth run. We headed further along the ridge hoping to ski the main drainage. A bit tricky to navigate as the visibility was rather poor. Lots of cliffs along the way but we found a reasonable drop in. Two rolls along the way for the line we skied - went right for the first one and left for the second one. SNow was funky but still skiable and a fun run. Put the skins and traversed to improve the final ski out. The lower cut blocks are fairly smooth and no trees (yet).

Backcountry skiing (Findr) 3:00:00 [3] 14.0 km (12:51 / km) +1175m 9:03 / km

Burnt Knob boulevard run with Stuart and Courtney. The uptrack was a little steep and undulating which was annoying. Snow was good - a couple old tracks in spots and some wind affect off the top. First time out on the new skis. They seem to have better float in deep snow than the Roamr and fairly easy to turn.
