Day 8 – half a day of skiing and a bunch of driving

In an effort to get a few more runs in on a short day the coaches got up the hill extra early. Due to the darkness and fog we couldn’t set anything because we couldn’t see anything. So we stood around in the cold and the dark for a bit.

Foggy peaks

Lovely Camp green.

Day 7: Hillary takes off

Thats a Hummer pulling the ailing Tucker

Run 4 and Hillary crashes. She hit her head and had a bit of a sore neck, Miles the medic didnt want to take any chances so she got the full spine board treatment.

The snow cat bringing athletes to the top of the east course, the west course can be seen in the background.

 

The road off the glacier, you need to download due to cravass dangers. When you get to the bottom of this road you walk to Camp Green, seen in the distance.

BC Alpine B2B Camp at Farnham – Day 1

Zach our cat driver, a very patient man. He gets us to and from the glacier as well as cycling us to the top of the run, our very own chairlift.

Crevasses everywhere

Our day got cut short when one of the athletes crashed, and crashed hard, the helicopter in the distance is taking them to the hospital in Invermere. Unfortunatly the medic flys with the injured and the rest of us have to stop skiing due to the lack of a medic.

PL and the crew load the tucker which takes the skis down to Camp green, we walk the 1 km everyday after skiing
