Rogers Pass

Well after seeing the conditions currently out at Rogers Pass I think im going to hang up the picks for a while... Today we headed up the Connaught drainage and up to Ursus where the skiing was sick! 50cm blower snow. Despite being dusted when couloir 4 off Cheops ran to the valley, the snow on south aspect was pretty solid. Going back tomorrow.
