Skiing Between The Lines

As the day went on, and kickoff drew nearer, we wove a few more threads between the lines…

…until eventually our tapestry was well woven, and it was time to go.

As we descended however, we realized there was one more set of lines that needed skiing between….


What a perfect drill to practice your Rog Turns (TM)!!

Tighten up!!

FYI the ski out is STILL very rocky, so bring rock skis or be ready to walk down. Thanks for reading FIS! We’ll see you out there!

    Thanks FIS for MW report, photos, notes; yes, heeding the cryptic advice (read “warning”) brings everybody home safe to ski another day; no patrol up there. Great shots of soft fluff between the tracks, well-handled by you. Kudos.

    WTF: An add for a SCUM SUCLING ambulance chasing lawyer on your website???? Come on folks… aren’t THAT desparate for $ are you. It’s SO counter to what BC skiing is all about. These guys kill freedom. I’m Diapointed.

      Alot of the adverts are auto generated by Google…

      I suspect you saw one of these, because all the ads we choose to appear on FIS are gear related. We never seek out adverts for sleezy stuff like that, and we’d never purposefully put an ad like the one you described up there. I’m going to look into it, and try to kick it out of our ad feed.

      Thanks for pointing it out!! I’m looking into it RIGHT NOW

      From what I understand the google ads are generated by a combination of host site content and the user’s personal browsing history. I think there is a blacklist that can be applied so that certain ads won’t appear anymore, but that would be fairly laborious…

      Anyhow, sweet TR…

    There is no way to TOTALLY control Adsense (Google) ads. It’s even harder in the off season. Nice pics P+G!

    nice. did you guys dig at all? Curious about average snowdepths up there. Not like it matters much with the big wind both giving and taking.

      See what Jake said below. Variability is maximized. You have zero and several feet within inches of each other… classic MTW.

    we dug for sure, ml. but in very localized places. And in such places the snow seemed to be in the 3-4 ft range. but that all changes with a day or two of wind and/or rain/snow. So with a grain of salt. Still on the thinner side overall, but not too bad.

    I’m really digging the mismatched alpine and touring poles.

    Skiing between the lines is almost always a good decision. George doesn’t care what your status is in life, you will always look good for a meal. That is something there that no one wants. Yes and I fully agree there are many other lines in that area that can be safely skied. Snow science is something that every BC person should try to understand. Especially this year. Ofcourse in Vt. we are now experiencing what everyone dreams of. But lest we forget, it may all be taken away at anytime. So one must honor Ullr. But more
    importantly, trust your second voice. For pilots like myself, we often run into second voice hearings. You know that little man in the brain bucket that says better take another approach. Most of the time he’s right. Ski safely and do your homework. By doing this you will have much more delight and fun.
    This I guarantee. Great pics as always. You guys and gals do it very fine.
    Very fine, indeed! Have fun while it’s here. BC

    I am really inspired together with your writing skills and also with the format on your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you modify it your self? Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a great blog like this one these days..
