January 14-15, 2005
I hadn't been to Steep Creek in years, and I had been itching to return. Grahame, Chris and I headed up for an overnight trip. We had a leisurely start on saturday morning and only managed to squeak in onr short run after dropping our camping gear. The next morning we had quite a few exellent runs east of the lake. The snow was fantastic and the backcountry finally had a winter feel to it. I've got to get back here when the stability is a bit better; there are some fatastic runs I'd love to do.
Leaving the road, James Bond Basin straight ahead
The early bird gets the worm. We, on the other hand, get a mini run at the day's end.
No surprise, Chris is trailbreaking.
GQ on the descent.
Chris loves his new Reverend fat skis. Watch out or he'll Bap-tise you!
Yours truly enjoying the pow (photo above and below by mr. quan)
