The guys had so much fun last year they decided to come back again. Here are our photos
from the tour around south-eastern BC.

Mark Carpenter and Shaun Lindsay flew into Calgary and we drove out to Kicking Horse in Golden, BC
to start our tour. Here's the "Before" picture as we're getting ready to shred some gnar at one
of Shaun's favourite resorts.

Here's the guys at the top of the Stairway to Heaven lift. We had a gorgeous day for skiing
even though it started a little bit chilly.


Full size
We hiked over to the Whitewall to get into the Feuz Bowl. I told Mark to look like he was ready
to shred. I don't know what this look is.

Shaun at the top of Whitewall. The cornice to the extreme right of this photo looks to have
avalanched the day after we were there.


Full size
We decided to hike up to the Glory chute as this is one of my favourite lines. This is Shaun
looking as giddy as a schoolgirl.

This is Mark at the entrance to Glory. Check out the sweet peaks behind him. Apparently, there are
wolves in them thar hills.

This is looking up at the Terminator run at Kicking Horse. The snow was excellent. Shaun and
Mark are in this photo somewhere.

Here is Shaun taking a pee at the top of the Whitewall.

This is the cornice that we think dropped. A note that it is in a permanent avalanche closure
area and shouldn't ever be skied.

Shaun, getting ready to huck his meat.

Our next stop was Revelstoke, BC. We woke up to the car being buried under 10 cm of snow and
we got really stoked. We were actually waiting in line at the gondola before the 8:30 am start.
Too awesome. I didn't really take a lot of shots since the light wasn't great, but we followed
James Chu into the Greeley Bowl and this is the view back to the North Bowl.

This doesn't quite capture the depth of this snow, but here is Mark pointing them downhill.

James Chu earned his lunch by taking us up to Greeley. It was absolutely excellent and super
deep untouched snow. Thanks James!

Shaun loved the face shots that wound up in his goatee, or what I call his rake. I think
there's a chicken in there somewhere.

In the last 28 days, 9 people have had to spend the night in the backcountry due to being unprepared.
4 of them needed a heli lift out. I thought this sign was great.

James also wanted his head in the picture too.

The sun came out at the end of the day and delighted us with some heat on the deck at the
lodge. There was a band playing, the sun was out, we had burning quads. The only thing missing is
the beer.


Full size
Shaun and I at the end of an epic day. I think we did ~ 30,000 vertical feet. Not bad for 10 runs.


Full size
We took the ferry down to our next destination - Nelson. Here's my car on the ferry at Galena.


Full size
The view from the ferry on Upper Arrow Lake. Not bad.


Full size
We stopped at Nakusp hot springs to rest our weary bones. Here's Mark in the water.


Full size
Here's a blurry shot of Shaun.


Full size
I like how the "Icy Deck" lit up by the flash.


Full size
Here's the three of us in the super hot pool. Looking up to the almost full moon with a slight
amount of snow coming down, sitting in the hot springs... A perfect way to end a great ski day!


Full size
The next morning we skied Whitewater near Nelson, BC. This is a much smaller resort than
Revelstoke, but steep, technical, and full of good stuff. It also had a stupid amount of
very light fluffy snow. Shaun is assessing the scene.


Full size
We mostly skied the Summit chair. This is Mark in the Diamond Glades. The entry was snug
but the snow was excellent.


Full size
This is everyone trying to find Princess Pre-release's (Shaun's) skis. We met up with Heather
J, her new man Brook M, and her friends Teresa and Katherine.


Full size
Our last run we decided to hit up the hike up to the untracked stuff in between the two chairs. Mark
was a little winded but stoked by the snow.

We also skied Fernie on the way out, but the snow was bad, and the weather was really cold so we came
home early. Another great powder trip from Princess Pre-release (Shaun) and Faceplant (Mark). Return to picture index
