Whistler Jan 2011 Part 1

Whistler Jan 2011 Part 3

After a couple of days without fresh snow, an unassuming 5-7cm forecast turns into 36 hours of ultra-fine powder falling which gave a really good coverage up top.

Ascending Harmony Chair...


  



We were the first to go off Low Roll and down the Gunbarrels, a rare treat...





It was one of those days when you have a permanent smile on your face...


 



 

Looking down towards Harmony Chair...


 

 


Dave comes in close...


 

No time to stop while there's powder to be had, Dave heads down...

 


Back up for more...


 
Ian's stick...


 

Off to Symphony...


 


Ski patrolman knocking off the cornices (spoilsport!)...


 


Dave...





Next day at Blackcomb glacier...





Ian keeping his nose up...


  




And off...




Fair to say that by the afternoon the sun was up, the mist had cleared and the glacier was no longer the best kept secret in town and the main channel was pretty well tracked...





Ian tackles the run-out...



Dave takes advantage of his Flows and strolls out...



Ian & Dave ready for the 2.9km track out to the lift...




View up from the bottom of the glacier to some impressive lines that must have taken a fair old hike to win...
