After 4 days of snowfall here in the Burns we finally have the promised and desperatly needed high pressure to get out to the Selkirks. Besides skiing some epic runs, we established two fuel/rescue caches in the Duncan Valley and gathered a lot of useful information of the snowpack in our remote areas. We also flagged close to 100 runs and celebrated a good days work with free booze and so on!

deep, down and dirty!

I can definately say that I've had worse runs for the first run of the season. The first afternoon of "Set up" at the Bobbie Burns rewarded Jeff and myself with an epic run down Estancia in the Crystalline drainage. It can only go downhill from here!

cold week with the kids

Kimbi had to go on her first aid refresher, so I had the kids for the first time for the hole week. Since it was bitter cold, we did not get out much at all. A couple of hours each day was enough for me and them. At least we got some snow too, which turned the landscape around Canmore in a bit of a winter wonder land. I quite enjoyed the last few days with the little ones (not sure if they did too!), it gave me a chance to get to know them a bit better.
