April ski touring

An unbelievable April so far, at least when you like skiing. I keep on running into people who would rather have it warmer and sunnier in order to go rock climbing and the only thing that keeps them sane is the newly opened Canmore climbing gym. I do love climbing too, but if the ski conditions are like this I have a hard time missing out on those magic days. After finishing my heli skiing season in the Cariboos first week of April, I was guiding and playing with skis entirely in the Rockies, and the Rockies certainly delivered.
and it's not quite over yet...
