PHOTO COMP Cayoosh East Glacier - Jan 9, 2011
With renewed confidence in stability we decided to head for open faces. We were thinking of heading to something N facing but its not too often that sun-exposed faces retain good snow so we decided to wander up to Cayoosh to take a look at some of the terrain. For a variety of reasons we ended up doing laps on the East Glacier. Wonderful uncharacteristically light snow. With clouds all around us we managed to luck out on timing as sun would hit the slopes just as we were ready to ski. We ended up doing two laps and a partial lap of the cutblock finishing the day with a 1000 m vertical run down the glacier and then through beautifully stable snow through the trees and to the creek.
