This is often a good time of year for days in the alpine. The temperatures stay cooler and there are usually more days without fog. During this time of year, we’re usually seeking out north aspects to get better snow and sometimes better stability. I’ve been lucky to hit some great conditions around Revelstoke this winter/spring with good friends.
Nice deep snow on The Dome as high pressure starts to settle in.
Jim and Crystal breaking trail. The Illecillewaet Glacier is massive and best appreciated by walking across a good portion of it.
Getting chased by the sluff on the Young’s Peak Headwall.
Getting gnarley with some Revelstoke locals, descending a fixed line to access the top of The Banana.
Steep and narrow, the lower half of the Banana. The Trans-Canada Highway down in the bottom.
One more track added to the popular Forever Young Couloir.
Surprised to find such good powder on steep north slopes during the warm days of late March. It was a fun day of guiding at Eagle Pass Heli Skiing.
Thanks to Ullr for providing the great snow this winter and to all my partners for helping me stay safe.
