Guide Training and Bluebird Pow at Whitecap Alpine

Christina Lusti and I spent a week doing a practicum/guide training at Whitecap Alpine with Niel Warren and fellow G3 athlete (and Whitecap Alpine owner) Lars Andrews. The week was filled with deep pow, great lines, fantastic food and best of all... awesome people.

Mid week the weather cleared and we became more confident with the storm snow. This prompted Lars and Niel to get a bit higher into the alpine.

With endless options we opted for a 1500' cooly with perfect snow and then to follow it up a burly ridge climb to another angled chute. Real nice!
