    Don't know what specific needs you have A.P. but I have size 26 salomon mtn lab boots to sell (or in your case lend or sell) and weren't you a fan of k2 coombacks? if so, I have a pair of 181cms non rockered o.g. coombas i can part with. Just sayin', just in case.
    What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?

    I have a pair of 2016 Cochise that I picked up for cheap so i am covered for skis. New Kingpins will be expensive but I really like those so i will bite the bullet there. As for the boots, I am coming to Terrace in August so if I haven't found anything before then I'll get a hold of you. Thanks for your offer of help. It is very much appreciated.

    I spent yesterday afternoon driving around Burns Lake and didn't find those dudes. This was after having checked out the security cam footage again in the morning. It looked like one of the dudes was carrying something that he did not have on the way up. A shiny flash is seen above his head and both myself and the couple who own the cams concluded that it looked like skis. Anyways, I'm leaving for Calgary today. I'll stop by Ruckus. Plus the highway south is closed so they have to go through PG and McBride so I will have a look for them. The bad part is that I was demo-ing those Scarpa F1's so now I owe Dave 500 bucks. The other Dave offered to set me up again at cost so that's cool.

    Filed a report and the constable was nice enough but he sheepishly told me that this kind of thing is not exactly a priority. Furthermore, stuff left in the woods is basically fair game. If my items would have been inside my car or house or something that is registered to me than it would be different, but since i left them in the woods, it's kind of. Grey area. As in the dudes could say, we just found some stuff and figured it was abandoned.

    Shit, AP that bites huge. I hope you get your stuff back man. I'd love to say hi in Cowtown brother but my sched is fucking insane until Aug.

    Guido, nice turns a couple of days ago,

    Interesting, you know with access being so hit and miss in Sibolas, I really think Wesach access is now the choice for July skiing. Too bad, there's some great history re the Sibolas, it just sounds like a shit show.

    As much as I want to look back on this day as a success all I can think after watching this video is that I have a major counter rotation issue to address (read: shitty snowboarding). Too bad skiing didn't work out for me.

    Snow has stuck around all day in the alpine up around Iskut. Perhaps its a little early to stoke the fires but this seemed like relevant info.

    Only 2 1/2 months gentlemen. In the meantime here's a recipe for summer survival in the Bulkley Valley;

    Step 1 - Attitude adjustment
    Step 2 - Hop on your bike and head to Telkwa via Tatlow Road
    Step 3 - Shotgun a beer
    Step 4 - Make like a Telkwa teenager and huck the bridge
    Step 4 - Hop back on your bike and return home

    August turns up on Wesach the other day. Twas fun serging the temp warmed sun cups and rocks down the lower half of the Nass Range classic, "Gulleloch Couloir". First summer in four years that the zone has held a closer to 'normal' amount of snow for this time of year....a bit less than long term average but at least there are still skiable lines. Sept turns on the schedule for next week if we get the forcasted sunny window. Looking forward to pow season in October!

    ^^^ Looks like you have better things to do than jump off bridges with drunken teenagers (unlike me). Well done.

    Tagged some sept. turns yesterday back up at Wesach. Had to forgo another bigger line ski due to a rolled ankle...it was a grunt getting to the 12 turn patch but worth it. First T.A.Y. season since 2014 due to the previous summers' early thermonuclear meltdown of snowpack. Felt good to feel some 'normal' again this summer. Only a month to go till pow season, stoked!

    Report from the field from Zeeripper. Up to 20cms of recent new snow was laid down with no wind affect in the north aspect alpine in the mid nass range north of Terrace. New snow depth decreased rapidly below 5500 feet to about 5cms on the lowest snow patches at 4500 feet. Apparently the ski quality was good in the higher elevation snow that was resting on glacier ice and old snow...to link the full run of 1500 feet, four ski/hike transitions were performed. No reports of rock damage on skis or resulting injuries from potential tomahawks, but I would suspect that the conditions were favorable for frequent ski/shark encounters.

    Early start to the season around here. The highs and lows of early season skiing were very high and very low!
