Trip Report

Chickadee Peak has been on my radar ever since seeing Raf's trip report on it. Back when Wietse and I did Boom Mountain, I remember looking at all the skiable terrain further up the Chickadee Valley and wondering if there were any other peaks we could ski in the area. Well, it turns out that there is! As Wietse, Ferenc and I drove to the parking area, Wietse started asking what we'd do if there wasn't any snow on the approach! We weren't laughing so hard when we finally parked. There wasn't a lot of white stuff around anymore... ;)
