    TR: Kokanee Glacier Cabin, BC

    Better late than never. Took this trip with gramps, jongchrist, _Aaron, my buddy Adam and 12 other acquaintances/friends in March of 2015. At low elevation most areas in BC were having a rough year. Up high it was marginally better. Everyone drove up to Nelson and we stayed a night at the Dancing Bear Inn before staging for our heli flight the next morning.

    Started out drizzling and wasn't looking like we would fly


    Still shit weather


    Even the avi dog is doubtful


    Canadians fly in said shit weather


    Heading towards the valley


    First peak of what's in store


    The accommodations were not lacking


    We brought a metric shit ton of beer


    Killing time the first night, playing chess, hydrating, life is good


    _Aaron digging a pit our first day out. It rained up high but then snow started to fall. About 8 inches on top of a stout rain crust


    Adam making some turns for the camera


    _Aaron airing it out


    Didn't end so well


    _Aaron getting high in the Alpine, one of the two days we could get up high


    Adam


    Posing at the top


    Fluted shit


    Working my way into a nice coulie from the top


    Twas fun


    _Aaron adding his flare


    So much potential, so little time


    Jongchrist pillowing


    Continuing to make waves then ride them


    Throwing people


    Milking the last turns


    Flying back to town, it was good

    FKNA!!!!
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.
