I spent most of my spring break on a school trip, but managed to get a way for the last few and do some British Columbia backcountry powder skiing. Sleeping in my car gets a little old, but amazing terrain and light snow sure don’t! Out of deference to the friendly locals we’ll not publicize the exact location. If you know it great. If not, you’ll have to discover it. What made my trip special was getting some of that low rated avy danger along with skiable pow — a combination that’s about as rare as moon rocks back home in Colorado and more common up around here (though things can of course be dangerous anywhere).

To all involved, thanks!
