    Great time at Sibolas had by all. Including the mozzies. Great to be back at such a sweet area after so long. Snow conditions were superb and the weather forecast erred to our advantage.

    But, flashing back to the ski day with Brad at Wesach I'd like to share some photos of a great day first. Back at the end of June so not current but whatev.

    Lucky enough, a few days after my Wesach day I got to ski Sibolas with the usual suspects. But shit damn, it'd been a while since I skied here with these folks. Thinking 10 to 15 years. Great to share this with Vivian, and introduce her properly to L man and Jim, Keith and Heather.

    Vivian on first bowl, first turns in the Sweeney area. Last time I took a girl here, she (a boarder) froze midway down the slope. My (perhaps 12 year old) son, ripped to the bottom of the slope, out of sight because it rolls over steeply (the reason, of course, boarder girl stopped and froze in the first place). So dilemma and high drama occurs where I have to leave her crying and perched on a 35 degree firm slope (where, for sure she would have slipped to the bottom of if not on her snowboard edge....), and go ensure my kid was ok... Needless to say, no one died and the girl and I are not together anymore.

    This trip was way more fun.

    Vivian on the 2nd last pitch. Last pitch was the waterfall and it was superb, with a downclimb into it. Whole team slayed it

    I've seen American plates parked at a local trail head and a forest service camp site in the last 2 days which is odd since the Canadian border is closed to Americans at this time.

    Here's a link to the Government of Canada page concerning Americans visiting Canada.

    https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration...xemptions.html

    And in case you don't feel like sifting through the whole thing, the gist of it is that Americans are not permitted to be in our neck of the woods beyond transiting through to and from Alaska. And that means no stopping to recreate.

    Well my northern brethren, I've lived far more north than Smithers and Terrace, but I've only ever driven through your neighborhoods moving back and forth from the Yukon, this will be changing next week. I'm going to be loading the car and biking, hiking, camping and fishing in the your areas starting Tuesday next week. I'll be solo so if anyone wants to tour me around, go for a hike or show a mag some local bike trails I'll return the favour with beers, things to smoke or my special batch of homemade hallucinogens.

    I am crazy busy in my life right now but let me know via these pages when you are in Smithers and I can either join you for an outing or at the very least hook you up with some adventurous folks.

    And on another note, this years volunteer cutting program at Hudson Bay Mountain has begun. The emphasis this year is more on brushing than cutting new runs. Having said that, the firefighters are working on a new run between Dahlies and Cold Smoke. Sure hope they fully process the trees they fall (limbing, bucking and chucking everything).

    We started giving Chapman's Challenge a much needed hair cut today. Very satisfying!

    ^^^ beauty thanks.
    Great stuff around here so far, the bike/camp scene at Kager is impressive and worth the trip north on its own. So looking forward to exploring more.
