Ben Furimsky and I headed out with plans of skiing Mt. Owen today, but after getting a good look at the face we decided to change plans and head elsewhere. Owen had a huge cornice blocking access to much of the face, plus some debris and wind affected snow, so we went over some other options. We both ski Axtel a lot, and we both wanted to ski something different, but Axtel looked like it was in perfect shape and Ben had put a snowmobile track all the way to the summit the day before. With the track in, we knew we could get a couple of laps in no time at all. I usually find snowmobile laps to be more trouble than they’re worth, but this one was just too easy.
This shot is from 2 years ago, showing part of 4th bowl. Good times straightlining through the cliffs, 4th bowl is the real deal.
