May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.-Edward Abbey
Two years ago this month was a different time! I was restless and looking to travel but didn’t have any ski buddies with the same window of time to get out of town. Consequently, I ended up finding a single open slot on trip to a heli-accessed backcountry ski-touring operation in British Columbia; the fairly well-known Icefall Lodge. It ended up being a great week of skiing a variety of conditions, but ultimately getting some sunshine powder skiing by week’s end. The food was incredible and the terrain was some of the best in the world! I never got around to posting photographs from the week. Since anyone who can leave Tahoe right now is skiing in Utah, Wyoming or Washington… since I am not charging out the door this morning to chase snow here in the Sierra… here’s a photo blast from a great week in February, 2019.
