A Trip to the far East, Exploring Americas Hat

By:  Sam
August 26, 2009

Apparently all those hikers were going to the party that was taking place at the serpentine hut. An avalanche awareness event of some kind. We were clearly under dressed however, so we took a wide line around the hut and headed for the mountains.

… and on up. I could get pretty used to EC alpine snow.

Enough sitting around though, time to show these silly Canadians how to ski

We were the first people up the patroller’s bowl that day and thought that we might be in the wrong area due to the lack of tracks. By the time we got done with that run though, the mountain was swarming with people all being weird in their own uniquely inexplicable way. We witnessed people hiking down with skis on, booting up next to a boot pack, hiking in dress shoes etc. It was far stranger even than Tux during the inferno.

    Very funny. I’m Canadian by the way. Just a comment about that bigfoot truck pic you took. You have everything imaginable over there. You have to stop there one time in your life. There used to be by a sex-o-gaz, where strippers fill your gaz pump, but it doesn’t exist anymore. You know a man has to refuel once in a while.

    In the Chic Choc if you go out of the park itself, you can ask locals to give you a snowbile ride a couple hours in the BC to ski untracked crazy places.

      wow you’re right! Sam’s off in India and I doubt he can take care of this now… and I’m not sure where the pictures are living currently.

      I’ll look into it and try to get it fixed. Thanks for the heads up!
