Canuck Split Fest TR
 
I finally have time since I have been home to put this together. This trip was organized over on split.com and was a super fun time. It was held at Rogers Pass in BC. The snow was deep and plentiful. It was refreshing to get pow turns instead of faceted shots. The clouds were on top of us the entire time we were there, but I heard it cleared up the day we left and beautiful out.

Heading towards the peak before we got turned around due to the slope collapsing rather significantly

Wow! great shots. What's the average amount of time it would take you to hike up?

From the lodge where we went it the base of the slopes were pretty much right there so there wasn't much of an approach. I would say a couple hours to get to right above tree line. Mind you though we had to break trail generally everywhere we went.

Should have made it. It was by far best snow I have gotten this year. Always next year though!
