Kokanee Glacier 2016 – Battleship and Key Hole

Kokanee Glacier Ski Trip – Jan 23rd – Jan 29th 2016

Day 3 – Sunny day up Pyramid to the Repeater Tower, Battleship laps

We woke up to Blue Bird which means we tour into the Alpine! Our objective was to ski the Key Hole. With the wind affected alpine we initially decided not too. We were also going to ski into Joker basin, but again the winds kept us away. We turned back to the Battleship. The main group skied Smugglers trees and the Apron, we skied the Battleship twice and Smugglers bowl. Lee and Stu decided to hit the Key Hole, Linda and I did another lap down Smugglers, then Pyramid and got back before it got dark. Awesome sunny day at Kokanee.
