A couple of us headed up to colchuck lake yesterday. Ale and I spent thursday night at the lake. Kyle and Dan met up with us the next day on the colchuck glacier. Since I'm short on words I'll just start throwing up pictures.
Dragontail at night
Goodmorning...nice place to wake up
Board vs. Boot
Ripper corn for the 1st lap off som sub-peak of colchuck
After breakfast we headed up to colchuck col where I ran into Kyle and his friend Dan...nice to meet you both
From the top of the glacier...Ale, Kyle and I skinned up and rode down the sw face of dragontail. A nice line with good snow and scenery.
Kyle and I scrambled the ridge while Scott dropped in
Scott dropping in
I love you
Kyle coming down the sw face
If all that wasn't enough...the top half of the colchuck glacier was loaded with windblown and packed powder from a storm a couple days earlier. Real nice turns back down to the lake
Then the jibb'in started to happen
We tried for this little gem but the wind had hammered it...some other time
Sometimes you pay a fee when everything goes right. Commence rotten snow on talus followed by devils club and creeks. Hope you guys made it outta there!
