COMP Skiing Vantage Ridge Duffy Lake
This is my fantastic day skiing with friends in the Duffey lake area.
I just started backcountry skiing this year after a friend talked me into trading in my inbound skies and boot for some lighter backcountry stuff + a shovel probe and transceiver. The season has typically been that the friday night I receive a text form one of his friends just telling me what time and where to meet the next morning to pick up other skiers. I have no idea where we are going just not to be late at a 6am start. From the morning rondezvous I get my first hint of where we are headed but I still don't know where we are really going as I have not learned all the cool areas yet. From where we park the cars we climb and I track thies secret locations on my GPS for my bag of cool places to go for I like how it feels.
