Powder Creek Days 5 & 6
Wishbone, Home-run, Cirque and Remote. To the uninitiated, these words mean nothing. For people familiar with the powder mecca that is Powder Creek, these are familiar run names that are a straightline to fun. They're also describe the zone we hit today. Nice day.
The Backcountry Skiing Canada posse is here and we are wrapping up a week of touring. Two days of sun, two days of overcast, 60 cms of the white stuff and more on the way tonight–for our grande finale tomorrow before the helis come to take us away on Saturday.
