we got a surprisingly early dump on snow during the first week of october. the high alpine got over 3 feet of snow so we figured maybe we’d see if we could get into it and do some turns.
went for a little scope north of pemberton along the hurley pass with mikey. first snow of the season is around 6500′ so nothing on the logging road yet, just high alpine. this is probably the earliest snowfall i’ve seen since living in whistler, the forecast is also called for about 2 to 3 feet
mark and i thought we’d go do some summer recon work and maybe find some new sled access for next winter. we learned a couple lessons…
headed down to the summer x-games my first real vacation to southern california in 18 years (i went to disney land when i was 10) to take in the festivities of summer x-games and watch mikey and jussi get their real snow backcountry medals and have a TIME, and oh man, it was a beauty!
