I was left wanting a lot more after all the work we put in breaking trail to the sun God so Danielle and I packed up and headed back to the Birkenhead early Sat am. As we left Squamish the weather was bluebird and the temps were cold!
The drive was scenic....
This time we were at the base of the mountain within 30 min of the truck!
It was only 10:30am and we were in the alpine!
We crossed some pretty aggressive slopes above Cerulean Lake with confidence in the snowpack.
At around noon the weather really started crapping out and a dark milky haze surrounded us.
Sun God Sun Dog!
We shut her down at 2100m on the North Ridge of the Sun God. With a pretty aggressive early season line in our future we spent some time looking at the snowpack. The good news was the Nov 7th hoar layer was deteriorating and bonding well on the slope we had chosen.
First big line of the year!
50 deg with interesting glide cracks and mini bergs to air over ....
Back to the pow wagon in the dark.
After another evening of beer and hot-tubbing we awoke early so a reasonable wether day.
The previous days tracks looked good....
Again the Sun God shone on us!
A great early season week-end!
