A Summer Ski

With a great El Nina year, and a ton of snow remaining in the alpine in late July, we headed up to Cypress Peak (between Squamish and Whistler, not the ski hill in Vancouver) for a late July ski. I had been here once previously on a hike in October and had wished I had brought my skis to ski the NW flank.

After spending the night before in whistler being celebrities and sleeping in his Volkswagon Wesfalia, greg and I met up with Tom for a relatively early start. It was a bit of a difficult climb through stee sections as the top crust was melting and not bonding to the pack below. All in all a great july day!
