    Felt like May on HBM today. Sunday dawned as a day in March and transitioned to the current May conditions by late afternoon. Glad we left early!

    you and Shar are the only married couple on the Burnie trip so you would have got the " Conception room " cooler and quieter what with all that heat the Amish maid puts out but going at it like Pine Martens every night is a lot to live up to you know La

    might leave you too depleted to be on the A team eh ?

    Thin and getting thinner but hard freezes make for green light conditions. By my count 13 people skied the 5000 face between Friday and today, including a group who gave Lee's group a special salute on their way out from Burnie.

    The 2000 or Headwall of Big Simpson. A shorter but often more interesting piece of skiing compared to the showcase 5000.

    The Hour Glass. I really want to ski this line and a few others in it's vicinity. Unfortunately I only seem to find myself in this neck of the woods on my way elsewhere.

    Yeah its an up route rather than a line to ski, good to see the Hourglass at extreme low tide, thinking back 4 yrs ago I can see where those rocks on the lookers right would have probably anchored the snow pack > the boot pack up the left

    On the other side of the hill we were rocking the skin suits and drinking lotsa beer, I think the Shussboomer might be the only citizen DH race left in Canada

    I heard a comment on saturday that the skin suit squeezes the massive quad muscles of old DH racers up to be redistributed around the gut, I had some shorter GS skis but I splurged on a piece of toko HF tribloc and managed to win the old guy wreckreational class

    By my revised count 14 people took advantage of the conditions and skied the Kathlyn Face this past weekend. We were 7 at the top when I was there. Well done to the local scene. This is a view of the face taken from my deck.

    5000 ft of skiing

    I posted a couple of pics of this feature last week. Went back this weekend and managed to ski the whole line. No clue wtf is going on with the upside down pic below.

    Schnai Day today at HBM. Always a good time. Super fun family event. Bittersweet for sure.

    xxx-er made it across the pond with zero difficulty, even though he got pelted by some snowballs on the way in. They have to do something about that.

    Even with the low tide tide winter, the place could stay open for another month. If only we had the population. Overall another great season at Hudson Bay Mountain. Respect and thanks to Gary and Michael and everyone else who makes it happen up there. We are lucky to have a cool little hill to call our own.

    A higher take off this year made for an easy ride with enough speed to do a 180 coming out the back end

    As always the lotus 120 is the slush pond tool of choice

    Gravel skiing back on the menu. Figured out an optimum ski + shovel drag system for the boot packs ascents. Can't wait to try it on snow...could be another game changer.

    Tight little 100 vert foot car lap sand/gravel pitch just west of Endako off of Savory Road, followed by some great grass ski Rollka turns on the highway interchange in Quesnel. Non snow summer skiing is just so damn convenient!

    Smile

    Skiin' the sand's been a game changer Gary! No more heat induced summer skiing thermonuclear meltdown sufferfests at Wesach to ski suncups or blue ice; savor the sand, grate the gravel!

    One more: Homage lap for the iconic gone but not forgotten Sandblast sand skiing race in P.G. Hikers postholed the run, but what can u do...skiers are second class citizens now that it's a hardman/woman uphill sprint/interval training route. That's okay...hikers are people too.

    No, it was actually Aschcroft, but didn't wanna blow out the zone. Red herrings. Obfuscation.

    yeah that didnt look like sandblast, Sandblast was I believe steeper, more gravel than sand, had some big fucking rocks and there was a 3 ft deep ditch at the bottom which never had enough hay in it, as a sand blast winner once told me "you have to let the ditch catch you "

    Not ashcroft, it was the o.g. P.G. sandblast slope. I'm guessing years of folks hiking it kinda kicked a lot of the bigger rocks down and filled the ditch or something. There's still a good amount of gravel but pretty well mixed with sand. The bottom of the run tongue reaches onto the road but there's still ditch on both sides of it. There's actually a blue steel change room at the bottom right of the run with little cubbyholes for shoes and seating bench. First class. Slope def not that steep but is steep enough and the gopro de-gnars slope angle so there's that too. The hikers installed a rope that runs about half the length of it. Watched em hand over hand the top pitch; hard core p.g.'ers...no gloves on a frayed u.v. hardened old can tire special.

    Ashcroft has some great looking terrain though.

    Not sure what thread it was on but I recall Swiss posting a pic of skiing on Haida Gwaii not long ago. Just got back from a great trip there with the fam. I would like to know more about skiing there. Where, when, how etc., Thanks in advance swissiphic and anyone else who has beta to share.
