Consider this as an extension to my January 20 report, when I only got to Boulder Pass.
I used my Light Touring skis with just wax, even though I had my climbing skins in my pack... difficult choice.
Nice to have these longer days for these longer trips (this one was about 30 kms with over 1,000 metre elevation gain).
Wonderful welcome from the fabulous team who remembered me well from my January 20 trip.

I had been warmly welcomed in, but the sun was shining outside!

That looks wonderful!
Does the trail to Boulder Pass seem reasonable for skinny skis?

The good news is that the ski out (to the Fish Creek parking lot) is now groomed and open to all skiers, but I would say that the trail up to Boulder Pass from the resort is too hard packed and narrow for an enjoyable descent on narrow track skis. That being said, there were two gals yesterday who went all the way to Deception Pass on just waxable track skis, and they handled it admirably!

I love the photos as usual.
