Lilliput Mountain - Hector Lake Wapta Exit

I woke the entire hut up at 07:00 on Sunday morning by turning on the stoves and lighting the lanterns. I paid for it by being recruited to help change the outhouse barrel!. I won't go into detail on this except to say that the best way to ruin your morning appetite is to change an outhouse barrel. That is some nasty business my friends...

Hector, Mount

I waited 3 years to finally accomplish what TJ, Megan and I did on Saturday, April 18 2009 - summit Mount Hector. Truthfully, on hindsight, it's for the best that it took me this long. The ski down was much more pleasurable now that I'm more comfortable skiing powder. I'm not nearly as good a skier as TJ or Megs but I can enjoy myself rather than just do the 'survivor skiing' thing.

Columbia Ice Fields - Winter Camping Trip

The first week of February 2012 was looking pretty promising for weather and avalanche conditions in the Alberta Rockies. Since Hanneke wasn't on call for the weekend of the 4th I decided to send out the "who's in?" emails to start organizing at least one day of backcountry skiing - hopefully involving a summit of some kind.
