Seing your stoke faces, I assume, the guide did a good job; I'll bookmark his name (prefer t m

hire an English than French speaking guide)

Forest was an awesome guide. He not only did a great job of getting me to the goods, but gave me some great pointers on skinning. I'm 10 times a better skinner than a few weeks ago. Got my kick turns down! He's pretty well known around the Seattle guiding community and actually have a few common friends/acquaintances. He runs a guide company with his wife, whom my girlfriend actually went to school with.

DrnknZag Kill, I actually did mean writing on a blank canvas!

I'm still in awe of that place. The mountains are just so unreal. The valley sits at about 3000 ft and mountains just go straight up on both sides to around 10,000 ft, with even higher peaks. Mont Blanc is over 15,000 ft and Aiguille du Midi is over 12,000 ft.

The resorts are very different out there too. Once you step off that groomed, you're pretty much in the backcountry. I don't believe they do much avy mitigation at all. Kinda interesting too that almost 50% of all skiers and boarders have some sort of ABS pack, not just those venturing off piste.

killclimbz Or maybe you did mean writing. Now that I am not looking at this on my phone. Still awesome. That hasn't changed.
