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.

Austin, Kailee, Chantel, and Spencer on the hike out to the vans.

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

BC Alpine K2’s, mid dryland hike

Connor walks through a glacial river for some reason in the middle of our hike.
