Canadian heatwave snow

I had a great Sunday, starting with work work work, with some progress I think, then went skiing, and finally returned to have a nice sauna and a swim at the hotel. And afterwards met some fun new Argentinians from my meeting at a late reception.

And yes, I did find snow after a long heat wave here in Montreal. Maybe a six meters long stretch, perhaps even as much as seven :-)

Thanks to Patrick Corcoran and Greg Rich who kept me updated on the melt in Saint-Sauveur; thanks!

A major theme in each episode is risk management, as just about every line involves significant uncertainty and danger. Cody does an excellent job explaining his rationale for nearly every decision made in the course of each prospective ascent and descent, lending the series an element of realism often lacking in extreme-skiing videos.

Athletes on the Freeride World Tour go big and fast. An unfortunate side effect of nuking down steep and sketchy lines is that when falls happen, they aren't gentle. In fact, they are almost invariably of the "Holy-shit-is-he/she-still alive" variety.  Related: Álvaro Penadés Triggers a Spring Avalanche in the Pyrenees With so many strong contenders for Best Crash, it's certain that there was vigorous debate at FWT headquarters over who would make the top five.
