    TR: Alpha and Serratus, Tantalus Range BC

    We skied around Lake Lovelywater over the weekend, here are a few pictures.

    The first objective was Alpha Mountain. We took the summer route, with only a slight variation to a couloir that took us higher on the south face. Only limited water ice, and two mixed moves, all simul solo.





    Summit!



    Ivory Shoulder was not in, so we skied back down the West Face. Did not have to take the skis off.



    Next up was Serratus. With the temps soaring, early morning starts were critical.



    Instead of the straightforward bootpack on the North Face, we climbed the West Couloir to the summit.



    Nice boot top powder on Serratus North Face.





    And then the long hike down to the canoe.

    I'd love to get into that range. Stunning.
    I can't believe you are a rando racer because I look so much better in Lycra than you.

    People who don't think the Earth is flat haven't skied Vail.

    Wow. So many parts of this are impressive; starting with taking skis up the Lake Lovely Water trail.

    Is your line visible in this picture of Alpha from the Highway 99 viewpoint?
