Kokanee Glacier Hut Trip – Feb 13 – 20th 2014.
Day 5,6 and 7 Maps and Profiles Glory Basin and Nansen
Day 5 the group headed up Pyramid to Kokanee Glacier to the Repeater tower to check email etc since Internet was slow to non-existent at the hut. There was some good spring corn on West facing slopes later in the day.
Day 6 Lee and I did a loop heading up Enterprise Creek and back down Nansen. Lots of good potential in this area, if you were to go to Nansen from Enterprise, take the low angle option and gain Nansen once on the ridge. It was very steep for us to skin/boot up the first open slopes but stability was bomber so whatever. See this Image for the Nansen side of the ridge you need to gain.
Day 7 Lee checked out Happy Valley with the group, I skied with Glade, Jen and Michelle. We found some a good three inches of dust on crust up Commision Creek and below tree line on Pyramid.
