Rogers Pass – Bostock – Jan 4th 2009

Jan 2, 2009 – Bruins || Jan 3, 2009 – 8812 Bowl – Ursus

Bostock drainage on Jan 4th Skied off SW facing slope off McGill shoulder into the burns. Found the same facet layer from Christmas but failling on moderate shears on that aspect. Ski pen was 30 or so and slope was w/l with fluffy white fist density snow. Skied a protected treed ridged rib instead of wide open bowl due to exposure.

Probably a bit conservative as ski cutting convexities produced nil results in any event. Quality turns had all the way down. Even the ski-out to the summer Star Wars track is all skiable.

1200m SFU!

Our intended target. We dug a pit here and found the buried facet layer again
