This was the best BC trip I've ever been on. A nice little storm dropped 1-2 feet the night before and the first half of the day while we skinned in. Then the sun came out and we got to ride 3 days of bluebird in powder.

Day 1

At the top of the "hump"
Image

Almost at the hut
Image

When we got to the hut no one was there and we had the place to ourselves until the next day
Image

Something new this year at the hut
Image

Josh was feeling good and went out for a sunset lap
Image

As the sunset, the views got better and better
Image

Image

Image

View from saddle between East and West peaks
Image

Those are the kind of hut trips you dream about, but usually never get.

Well played. :bananas:

nice westside stoke! the best trip so far? thats pretty sweet.

i was wondering how that storm treated you over there. it does look like you guys scored. very happy for you.

i really like the magic 8 ball avy forecast tool. it looks much more effective than reports and observations.

p.s. dont you just hate that powder snow? it gets everywhere!

I was just checking on Pear Lake to see if any other splitters had done it... Then I find you again. I wish I had known about it before last weekend so I could ask some questions...

Great pictures. Great trip.
