Mt. Baker & Whistler – January 2008
On January 6, 2008 Will and his friend Marc and I skiied Mt. Baker (lots of snow but the Canyon was closed) and then drove to Whistler. From the 7th to the 12th we skiied there – three days on each peak – and then drove back to Seattle. On Blackcomb we did Couloir Extreme a couple of times as well as Spanky’s Ladder, The Blowhole, Pakalolo, and all of our favorite runs. On two of the days we did laps on the glacier. On Whistler we did a couple horseshoes, The Couloir, Harvey’s Harrow and a lot of variations off Harmony and the peak chair (especially laps of doom & gloom.)
New snow every day, decent visibility, not too windy – all in all a very good trip.
Here’s a link to Will’s photos – I left my camera in my room!
