Our last two days were clear and cold. After snowy warm days we finally got our alpine conditions – Sunny and -14oC! Today Lee, Stu, Trevor and Sharon went for Diamond Glacier. We were moving slow today since it was our last day and all the trail breaking Lee and Trevor did the day before added up.
We get ready to go.
Home Fun rout to Kemmel Glacier Bench.
Kemmel Glacier Bench, Troll Pass and Espresso Ridge

Top get some extra vert on the Ice Pass ridge run. Kemmel SE ridge is in the back, Ice Box is far back to the left of the rocks on picture right.

Mt. Arras, always impressive.
We go there!
Heading towards Diamond Glacier
We stay to the left of the glacier
Pretty impressive mountains.
Even Sud Tirol Chue is impressed!
We decided not to venture down Tempest Glacier into the lower valley, but went back the way we came.
Snow was good!
