First turns of the season

School eased up a bit this weekend, but even with neither Steve, MT, or Bill able to go, there was no way that I was going to miss out on what looked to be good conditions. I fired off an email to the UofA Outdoors Club mailing list asking for partners. Pretty much every reply was from an international student, I guess they see people with cars as chumps willing to take them out of town for the weekend... Anyways, I managed to sift through all the replies and found some genuinely interested people, and headed down to Canmore on Friday night.

What you get when you combine a Norwegian chick, a park rat, and a British dude for a weekend

I was the only one without any real gear issues, but we cranked out a bunch of laps, and by my estimation, about 1000m vert, which is pretty good! Conditions were awesome, some of my funnest ski touring turns yet!

I'm pretty pumped it worked out well, definitely will consider using the mailing list for filling space in my car in the future.
