Here are some photos and video from my friend Brian and I skiing at Tryst Lake
in Kananaskis Country in Alberta.
After talking about it for months, Brian and I finally got to do some ski touring together.
Since it had snowed a bunch in the last few days, we decided to go check out Tryst Lake.
Here's Brian with his tele-sticks as we're leaving the car. One nice thing about spring touring
is that the sun is up before I am, even on early days!
Here's Brian on the skin track going up the gully to Tryst Lake. If you look really hard, you
can actually see my car!
Here's Brian rounding the steep corner on the approach skin track.
Here are the Tryst Lake Chutes, just below the Fist. They were unreal snow conditions today!
On the way up for our first lap, I dug a little in the snow. Finding the melt/freeze crust wasn't
hard at all as it was almost 1 cm thick! It was pretty solid density from this point and below though.
The melt-freeze crust slid with a hard compression 7.
Here's our first chute of the day. Check out the snow!
