Olympic Gold Medal Powder
If there's anyone we know who doesn't let good pow go to waste, it's Pat Mulrooney. He'll pack up the truck and drive to the ends of the earth for some quality turns, but luckily this weekend he didn't have to go beyond his backyard. Just outside his door, one of his favourite backcountry stashes got absolutely hammered with snow over the past 2 weeks. High quality turns awaited, but not until Canada was done claiming Gold in Olympic Hockey. In his photography blog he wrote:
"Twenty minutes from our front door in Squamish, B.C. there's a magical forest where pow dreams come true. It's a place where one can find 500m hallways that extend at 40 plus degrees through 300 year old Douglas fir trees. For us, these types of places are not entirely typical. The coastal forest above Howe Sound is generally thick and un-passable at these lower elevations. This place however is "Kootenay like". It's a place that after spending the last 25 years in these forests, is unparalleled to any other one like it in my humble opinion."
The proof is in the pudding, or photos rather, and it looks pretty good to us. Enjoy the pics, and view his full blog here.
