Old School WB

Whiteout conditions kept us from our first objective, Ayesha Peak, so we skied up the Onion, then out to the car.

Five of us did a three day ski mountaineering trip into the Balfour Hut. Poor visibility going in, but a spectacular day coming out. Extremely cold skiing, but decent conditions compared to Kananaskis backcountry skiing during the same period.

Stepped on a dangerous slab on the unnamed ascent. Fresh snow on top of windblown slabs persists at the higher elevations. Heavy snow load on St. Nicholas as well. We did the Onion as a consolation on our return.

Not a soul at the Bow Hut or Balfour Hut in December, 2005. Cheers.
