Last day before apocalypse

After another hard day of work in the backcountry of Whitewater, we needed to fuel up for what could have possibly been our last day in southern BC. Unfortunately, a forecasted warming of the temperature is threatening to screw up the nice powder that we had so far and increase the risks for avalanche, forcing us to move... We hope for the best.


When we woke up in the parking lot on our second morning at White, a dense fog was covering the base of the resort, making visibility mediocre. Our motivation was at its lowest, but we decided to skin up anyways, since it was possibly our last day in the Nelson area...

And then, unexpectedly and fortunately, the sky opened up to let the sun in and turn our so far very ordinary day in a great one! These pictures explain better than I coukd with words...


The resume of the hard day of work:

Great pics. My buddy and I were just behind you guys on the way up to the top of the Queen yesterday. Unreal day. We skied off the south side of the summit back to the road. Amazing day for skiing and photos. Keep up the good work.
