First day. Towards the Escargot Glacier.
Second day. Bootpack from hell up the Wizard.
Mike hated it. He was the heaviest.
A few thousand feet later...
We skied some of the glades the following days.
Third day. Bootpack from hell redux. Actually, it was better...
Ready to descend NW face of the Wizard
White and Black Russian Cols at sunset. Skied both.
The Wizard and the Escargot.
Ready for attack
Skin track from hell.
View back towards Perfect Pass and the Russian cols.
Stebbi sees the world brighter than most of us.
NW face of the Wizard. We skied the face under the rocky ridge.
We broke off a sluff here which ran about 1000ft.
We called this run 'The Bright Side'. Starts from the very top.
End of 'The Bright Side'.
Looking back at the Bright Side.
Doug cozy in a blizzard.
Stebbi, Ali, Jason happy in a blizzard.
Poaching heli runs.
Peeing in a blizzard is no easy matter.
Last day, after huge storm. Skiing safe slopes (so we thought).
Snow was almost like our beloved local mashed potatoes
Mike kicked off a slab. It did not go anywhere, but...
...it was pretty large!
