Forums Trip Reports B.C. winter. (mostly photos, no deep thoughts) Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) Author Posts March 19, 2012 at 7:14 pm #575889 Taft 287 Posts First winter in a new zone is always interesting. took me a long time to get a feel for the zone. not much for words as the photos tell the story just as well. in reality is started off leaving the bridge river to head up to the columbia ice fields for a little mountain objectives. heading up Athabasca Andromeda catching the sun rise and then winter kicked in. the conditions on the Duffy were not so good through December. I spent most of my trips just reconning zones for future tips. had a couple good days though. the bike riding was good till about a week ago. though i think I can sneak a low elevation ride in this afternoon. [youtube:2mn9cw95]TvAy8weUaFE[/youtube:2mn9cw95] things started to fill up by January though. had some nice deep days. got a great day in at the gorge with the poacher. sluffer showed up and soloed all day. the pocher and I dumped over the dark side for 2500m of pure face shots. [youtube:2mn9cw95]FZJchlyj0hc[/youtube:2mn9cw95] then a little school trip took me back to the monashees. the Ratchford Range is unreal. I had a bit of old slide film sitting around for the last 5 years or so. so I burned what was in my camera and shot some borrowed film for the remainder of the trip. got the Slide Film Cross processed. A quick trip to the Selkirks. got some nice turns off lookout with 70cm of low density snow. the shit you just dont see in the duffy. and then the last run up to spring has seen a bunch of snow come with freezing levels down to valley bottom. things are getting filled in. I feel like I have a bead on this zone as so far as how to shred during high danger days. the poacher was just out for three day and I took one photo. not much time left till work season, but bring on spring. :guinness: March 19, 2012 at 10:32 pm #648826 chrisNZ 304 Posts nice x-processing! this is my next film to go into my olympus trip 35 March 20, 2012 at 2:55 pm #648827 Taft 287 Posts some of those shots turned out kind of cool. a couple more if you like. most are from 2007, developed in 2012! film is fun. wish I could afford to shoot it more.
