Harvey – sounds like a rough life - Monarch snow cat and 18 runs one to day sleds the next then off to BC.

Just kiddin – the stuff that we were hitting just got good again over the weeknd so you didn’t miss much.

Also built a super sic o igloo hidden over by lost lake. Our dumb asses even stocked it with at full bar (the high life, Stoli, and Jack – with coke or 7-up mixers!). Didn’t think about being gone for a couple of weeks to Chile! You and Mo Inc are the only 2 that know where it is so if we return to find it littered with empty bottles and tele tracks we will know who did it! Naw when we get back we will have to get another round up there it should just be getting better!

Canada rocks and can also be really freakin cold. Had a couple of days of warm weather, then got wacked. I am not talking about Colorado cold. I am talking east coast deep freeze with high altitude winds and exposure. High of -10 F in Fernie. Anyway... Mountains are sick. Unbelievably scenic and the Canadian rockies seem to go forever in all directions. Lake Louise is cool. Has easy hike to steep chutes and some easy accessable backcountry, but not as much as some others. Sunshine Village was just OK for me. Was there on a bad weather day. Almost all their inbounds good skiing, requires beacon and gear as well as a partner. Posted a big problem for me as it was cold and not many people around to connect with. Not sure on there backcountry. Overall I wold skip it as there are better places. Kicking Horse is pretty sweet. Most like Crested Butte or Jackson (including some of the better than you attitude, cus I am so hardcore) Lots of good people too though. Great backcountry, but VERY sketchy snowpack. Just a heads up if anyone is going. Probaly suffered from some complacency, due to are pack, but a few stories of terrain ripping down to a November 20 layer, even on stuff that was well skiied. Lots of very dangerous sucker tracks. Only two main lifts, but they access two somewhat epic ridges, with very steep and very sweet couloirs/ chutes (lots of choices on lines) Fernie was a rough COLD day, but the terrain is good. Easy hikes and easy backcountry access. Also a better snowpack. Overall I got a bit robbed on the weather, but will be back as the mountains and terrain are truly amazing.
