Belated TR- Pemberton Backcountry (21-22 Feb 2011)

(Last Updated On: July 3, 2012)

After our excellent first day of skiing Pemberton backcountry, we woke up the next morning to snow. We headed to an area we will call Luna Creek.

We flailed a little bit trying to find our way around. But, we had a good day in the pow.

Some Canuks thought going over this “log bridge” was a good idea. We thought otherwise. Never follow snowshoers 😉

The following day we woke up to partly cloudy skies. John steered us toward a more local peak.

The trees in BC are HUGE.

Mini pillow mushroom land. I think the trolls live here.

We followed a treed ridge to near the top.

But, we never quite got there. Daylight was fading, and we didn’t want to push our luck not knowing the area. The entire day, everything took twice as long as we expected. Enjoying the views.

    The terrain at “Luna Creek” was so fun and playful! Booters, mini spines, mini chutes. Not the gnar, but one of the funnest lines the whole time I was up there.
