Yo-yo skiing is a lot of fun and it certainly has its place- however, I relish the long days of slowly moving up, up, & up. There is something so satisfying about hitting a bigger objective.
We did just that today- up, up, & up. Ascending up the Asulkan Valley we managed to make our way into the Afton Basin and up to its summit. Admist bootpacking, our stoke increased with every step thinking about our descent. The fog mixed with bits of sunshine made for incredible views along the way and at the top.
Have I mentioned recently….. Rogers Pass is a magical place??!!?
