More skinning.
Top of Cornerpocket.

Milo huffing up the ridge.

Me in the chute checking out the snow pack. It was pretty stable.

I think Cody loves the snow more than any other person or animal I know.

And that's all I got...

Milo, was this your first time skinning up hill? How tired did you get?

Jena keeps adding more photos. There are a few more good ones I'll have to go through them. Here is one I really like. A picture of our lines down Cornerpocket. The only tracks on that ridge this day.


I think you can see why I really like that line.

Ya lost my virginity on Wednesday.

Honestly my technique needed polishing and I didn't realize garys ski poles extended more so the majority of the day I wasn't using much upper body strength and I got worked.

I wouldn't have done as much if Gary didn't push me that's for sure. Def a learning curve to save energy....

Should be easier next time but ya my heart was pondering going on a vacation for a bit

Yep, the first time out can be a surprise... the altitude doesn't help.

Ya who knows how much the altitude got to me.... I feel I'm pretty used to it. I run up and down stairs every day in the mile high city and I rarely ever get winded when riding at resorts.... But splitting thousands of vertical steps def worked my ass ( =

And ya anyone who wants to rip it with Kill in the BC, better come in good shape cause he is.

We were out for about 9 hours, so in all we def split over 3 hours...

I don't think we spent more then an hour or two splitting at a time. I was a bit slow and Kill was busting lines all day so we we're a bit slower than his norm.

He may have a better estimate on how long it usually takes to do what we did

Probably two hours was longest stretch we had to hike that day. Hard to say, as Milo said, we had to bust trail most of the day which really slows you down. That is hard work. I was up on the pass yesterday and our skin track was still there. Evidently lots of people took advantage of our hard work. I'll say that we made the same point in under half the time. So much easier.

To get to the top of Russell, it's generally just over an hour, maybe 90 minutes. No Name is around two hours to get there. For Cornerpocket, I've been able to to get there in around 45 minutes from Peter Rabbit hut. We were really moving though. Generally speaking it's around an hour to 90 minutes. For the final drop, on that tour, it's pretty easy. Maybe 45 minutes because you have to cover some distance, but most of it is flat traversing to slight down hill. To get on the ridge I am not even sure if you climb 300 vertical. So it's relatively easy with some of the best pay off anywhere on the pass.
