2011/2012 Canadian Rockies Roll Call and StokeThread...
Oh yes I did.
It hailed massively on my lawn yesterday, and I found myself wondering what ski would be best for those conditions...
So I wandered around the house in my ski gear. Pretty stoked.
Is it winter yet?
I start out up high as the grey blur of pixels inbetween the slot of trees. White room turns up high, into surfy turns at the bottom, in 1.5 meters of snow that fell in about 48 hours...warmup run in early January 2011 at the horse.

It properly snowed on me at work last week. Couple cms of accumulation. Melted off the next day.Local Golden, BC area rep for Bluehouse Skis. Shoot me a PM if you'd like to try a pair when you're in the area!
"He is god of snow; the one called Ullr. Son of Sif, step son of Thor. He is so fierce a bowman and ski-runner that none may contend! He is quite beautiful to look upon and has all the characteristics of a warrior. It is wise to invoke the name of Ullr in duels!"

Snowed on me last Monday as we broke down our tent at 1900m ....it's coming. Hopefully my first turns will be in 1 month from now, after I get back from work. If this were last season, then my first turns would be in 2 and a half weeks, but i'll have to wait until I get back from my next shift on the 20th...hopefully it lines up with some of the first snowfalls. ....last 2 seasons have been that same week anyhow, 3rd times a charm.

make sure they're public. i.e., shared with "everybody". also make sure you're linking to the photo directly, not your profile view of it.

Fernie will gain some serious terrain with a lift up Polar Peak
Once the snow is cleared, Fernie Alpine Resort, began construction of the new Polar Peak Lift with the completion date ready for skiers and riders to enjoy in the 2011/12 winter ski season. The Polar Peak lift is the only major new lift installation in the BC Rockies for this winter and one of a few new lift installations in North America. It is believed that it is the only new lift installation going to a mountain top for this upcoming winter.
The Polar Peak Lift provides quick access to the various ridge-lines above the major alpine bowls. This quicker access for Ski Patrol will speed up efforts to open up terrain following the regular snowfalls Fernie Alpine Resort receives.

You're welcome to join on some early season shenannigans, but expect to trash your bases and skins and hit rocks.
I have a pre-season video that should give you an idea of what rockies early season is like. This covers the good pre season days, then the shit out immediately after once you get your hopes up and all the snow almost dissapears in October, but eventually as November progresses it starts getting consistent.

interesting way of taking a skin off. Ex dancer obviously

^lol....when transitioning unroped on thin snow covered glacier I don't take my skis off and stand on foot. Yes, I probed before taking the rope off but still.....

So where are you all getting passes this season?? KH for me for sure, along with one other yet to be determined.

Red... so really I shouldn't even be hanging out in this thread. Probably pick up one of those LL/KH deal cards (snowmax is dead now hey?) however.Life is simple. Go Explore.

I WANT to.... but I was flying my ultralight all weekend instead of hiking for turns. Way less effort!!
