Kokanee Glacier Hut Trip – Feb 13 – 20th 2014.
Day 3 and 4 Maps and Profiles Glory Basin and Nansen
Day 1&2 Day 5-7
Day 3 and 4 were much the same, good days for touring with bluebird skies. Colder in the morning and warmer in the afternoon. Still not warm enough for a corn cycle though
Day 3, Feb. 16th we toured into Glory Basin, Stu, Linda and Jimmy opted for some sick skating off John Carter, Outpost and Sunset Peak, Lee and Glade skated down Sunset Peak, myself, Meg, Jen and Michelle had a nice tour in Glory Basin.
On Day 4, Feb 17th, Lee Michelle and I toured into Nansen and got some decent turns when the snow warmed up. The Backside of Nansen into Robert Smith looks gnarly!
Every day starts and end with a lake ski.
