Kicking Horse Part Two

Our time with Jonathan and Sam at Kicking Horse was incredible. We had 18 inches of powder on our second day of skiing, and even some sun on the last day. The mountain is so huge that there was untracked snow even on the day after the storm. I can't remember skiing in better conditions.

We stayed right at the base of the gondola. Really right at the base. We could have thrown a microwave from our patio onto skiers waiting in line. In the evenings Jonathan cooked some tasty dinners and we fought the good fight in Pandemic (but lost anyways). We even got a bit of spades in.

We're flying to Argentina tomorrow and don't have much time to write, so I'm going to go straight into the pictures!

The four of us in the sun on Monday. We thought the photo was narrower :)
The view from our patio. A pretty prime location.

  1. Great trip! Exhausting skiing (and climbing!) in the powder at elevation, but whatever - - well worth it. Amazing chutes and glades, with Mike leading the way!

  2. Awesome pictures, and sweet air off pride Rock Mike!

    Also pumped to see a shoutout to Omar. That tie looks sharp on him.
