Day Four was supposed to be snowing and cloudy. It started out that way then the clouds dispersed and we got some good vis to check out an area we hadn’t skied before – Loop Brook and Bonnie Glacier. You can make a loop of this from Sapphire col by traversing across the Lily Glacier and out Loop Brook.
Looking towards the Dome, Lily Glacier – Asulkan Valley is behind this ridge.
Nice open slopes once you’re out of the creek.
Bonney Glacier skiing, or close to the Glacier anyway.
Looking across at Ross Peak.
Looking down Loop Brook Valley
Off a ridge and into a more open gulley and easy exit to the creek.
Skiing out by the old Train Stone bridge supports. Relics of Rogers Pass railway past.
