Asulkan Ski Tour

Asulkan Glacier, Rogers Pass 2019. Touring with the Spaniards

Illecillewaet Tour || Asulkan Tour || RMR Slack

Our tour up Illecillewaet didn’t discourage the Spaniards and they wanted more! So we went up the other side of the Valley to Asulkan Glacier.

Now that the Desk Jockeys had four days of skiing under their belts they were raring to go for another tour!

The Spaniards were – Luis Miguel, Christian, Miguelo, Paco, Antonio and Dirk. Our destination today was Triangle Moraine.

Asuklan side in Summer, we skinned to just below the Glacier below Sapphire col.


A view of Asulkan from the other side of the Valley. We went up the moraine on picture left, and descended the slope between this and the treed ridge.



Heading on up! Snow down low is still good to go!



Route in is a highway!
