Icefall Lodge – Day 3 – Mt. Kemmel, Icebox

With our track already set to Mt. Kemmel we went back to get as high as we could to hit up Icebox. We also wanted to ski Ice Pass and back up and over Orbit and Alien but opted to ski pow on the SE ridge instead. Gotta ski pow when there is pow available!

Duncan and Nick joined us again. It took 2 hours to get to the bottom of the SE Ridge and another 3 to get to the top of Icebox. Mostly since we were taken by the views, and didn’t want to fall into a crevace or over a cornice.
