Faceshots in the Rockies

Marg Rees hollering in waist deep powder at Observation Peak A great trip with Brian McBroom, Doug Sims and Clive Rubens. The powder was totally unexpected. The weather forecast predicted flurries! How could they get it so wrong! Any we had talked to Christopher last night. He was exhausted after being up all night moving mountains of melting snow away from his concrete foundations. The water was pouring into his basement. Apparently it was pouring rain in Revelstoke and dumping higher up. He seems to have things under control. But generally there is not much precipitation left by the time it hits the Rockies but this time we were in luck.

I try to look cool in the powder. Pretend I can ski it.

Back at the explorer. A rare day in the rockies breaking the snow drought of the last few weeks AND it was warm and wet.
