Our last day in Rogers Pass was sunny and cold. Dave and Anthony came up for the weekend to get their pow fix and to see what all the fuss about Rogers Pass was about! We agreed to meet Marco at 7:30am to hit the south slopes of Cheops before they warmed up too much. I told the guys I set the alarm for 6:30, I got them up at 6:00.

Heading up towards Cheops.

Marco heading south again!

Dave and Anthony aren’t quite used to these sustained climbs…

Yes Dave, there’s Stella up here!

Getting into the open you can see the potential!

Sharon on the ridge.

Anthony’s heals aren’t quite used to this…

Is there an easier climb? If you don’t want to ski powder there is…

We had to head back to drive home.

We had a good last run in Rogers Pass!


Nice pow!
