Scott N. on the summit of Cypress Peak, just as all the clouds started to clear, with valley fog below. We've only been here in the summer previously.
From the summit, we bootpacked back down to our skis as it was too rocky up there. And then we skied down the West glacier twice before heading back up to col and down the East glacier.
Wow. What a way to start the ski season! I'm looking forward to exploring the Coast Mountains.
