Sorry for the lack of trip reports this season. It has been a busy one with family commitments, opening a new store in Edmonton and all the usual life administration. With a shoulder surgery looming next Tuesday for me, Tim made sure that I got my ass off the computer and out into the mountains.
Being someone who typically rides at least once a week in the backcountry it was a weird feeling going out with little to no background to how the snowpack has been shaping up. So with a bunch of MIN report reads, some Backcountry YYC posts and a partner who has been out a bunch we headed to the hills.
The sun was shining, views were amazing, the snow was variable at worst and buttery smooth at best. Lot's of vertical, a bunch of bush whacking and a day on the short side of long but long side of average made for many a smile, and lots of lovely turns. So, enough words, I will leave you to enjoy the images below.
Stay safe out there and I hope you all get plenty of turns for me in the coming months whilst I am on the injured reserve list!
