Kokanee Glacier 2016 – Smugglers, Helen Deane and Kalmia Lake

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

Day 4 – Smugglers and Radio Ridge

Today the weather was overcast, but still cool. In the morning Lee and I did a beacon search in the Kokanee Beacon Basin, then we headed out towards Smugglers bowl to explore that area. We did two runs off the Apron, snow was pretty good, but the winds were howling! We then did a run down to Helen Deane Lake and off Kalima Lake or Radio Ridge to Keen Creek. The snow at tree line was again the best.
