Sol Mountain Lodge 2019
13 People on a self guided, catered by Min 7 day trip.
We booked this trip two years ago on a previous self guided trip, as well in 2018 on a last minute guided trip. Such is life when you want to stay at one of the nicest lodges in the Monashees! But with 5 toilets and 3 showers a sauna and delux roughing it accomodations, those who know, know. This lodge books up fast and we might not be able to go again self guided. We have gone in guided and that does not suck either. In fact your likely hood of getting cliffed out diminishes.
Also this lodge offer summer hiking and mountain biking. So if you’re in Revy its worth checking out in the summer too!
Jessie, Chris, Min – our cook – Gareth, Gavan, Grahame, Linda, Sasha, Lee, Sharon, Saar, Megan, Dave. Dave and Jamie – not shown – were our custodians.
We flew in on Glacier Helicopters from Revy. 70km flight to the South East. People who go from Revy fly in first and fly out last.
Since we arrived first Lee, Gavan and I did a short tour to Shiraz and Merlot
Day 2 was sunny, cold and begged for a tour to Sol Mountain. Today a group of us skied Solitude off Sol Mountain. A 780m Descent from 2388m to 1600m.
We then split the group with some doing laps off Sol Mountain down the N facing trees
Gav, GQ and Lee wandered off to Twin Peaks to ski a N face and scope out lines.
The next day we headed to Fosthall. Lee, Gav and Grahame skied from the top of Fosthall. Myself, Jessie, Saar and Dave skied Bermuda Triangle and Avalang. A bunch of others lapped Avalung.
Day Three a bunch of us went to the top of Mt. Baldur and skied into Funky town, Funky Chicken and Chicken Knob. Lee and Gav skied Jungle Speed where they found lots of windslab and sketch conditions.
One zone we hadn’t skied in our previous two trips was French Connection. We did ski Solace on our first trip and this made us want to check out this zone more. Conditions on this trip made this area Good To Go.
The next day we went back for more. Two Norquays and three French Connection Norquay variations.
