It was reading week at UBC. That means time for a longer trip for some
powder hunting. We got reservations for three nights at the Wendy Thompson
hut in the Duffy Lake area. The snow had been falling up there for the
last several days, with more in the forcast.

I built two sleds out of crazy carpets to haul up the beer and
fuel. Total cost was 12 dollars, and the sleds did a good job of
getting the beer and fuel up to the hut.

On the approach to the hut conditions looked good. Ski penetration
was 20-40 cms and the snow was blower. We spent four days riding laps
around the hut. Every run was deep powder and many faceshots were had.

We were all so stoked on this trip. Definitely some of the best powder
we've ever had. Vis was never very good, so the pictures have a hard
time adequately capturing the awesomeness of this trip. But here is an
idea:

Looking back at the hut as we skin up for another run.

We had been eying a cliff from the hut and made tracks up there for a
quick session on the last night
