The time is neigh. Winter has arrived and we have been skiing in town for about a month and a half. My Banff connection has informed me the snow in the mountains is getting deeper and skiing is an absolute possibility. Several ‘trail’ trips have confirmed the existence a good solid base and enough snow on top to make for good turns.
We are booked to ski at Mistaya Lodge early January. We heli in on January 3rd and will be out on the 7th. Our departure date is one week away and I am sitting here thinking about finding a packing list and starting to amass the particular items required to ski off piste.
Tomorrow is the ‘end of the holidays’ so I will get started and find that list. By tomorrow evening the basement floor should be scattered with gear.
