Below Pemberton, above Squamish and near that other valley....



Saturday Danielle tempted the "October Alpine riding gods" with a 8 hour epic above 1900m. Three weeks ago I saw an internet post of someone getting early season face shots in this spot. The weather was way too good not try so we headed north and set off up valley.


The long old road bed pedal was "fall colour" scenic....


Once we emerged into the alpine the snow hindered our progress but only a bit....


Rainbow Mountain goodness....




Maybe should have brought some skins?


We were here only 2.5 months earlier.... 


I found an RMK A-arm that had the potential of turning my Sight into a snow bike!  


Killer Castle Towers views....


Running around and digging holes all day makes you look like an idiot!


The iconic Black tusk and Mt. Garibaldi to it's left.


Looking back at the Tantalus Range towering over Squamish....


The snow is certainly creeping down Whistler Mountain....


Mmmm.... Wedge.


See you next year....

  1. Nice! I see the odd report of this route. Seems to be kept pretty secret.

    1. Cheers Leigh.... It's certainly important to have a few secrets in your back pocket.
