ast2: quartz ridge, sunshine meadows

We went to ski this thing:


Quartz Ridge


It involved another episode of cheating, where we caught the gondola up to the village at Sunshine, then rode a chairlift to gain even more height, then whizzed off downhill into the meadows. Eventually we ran out of speed and had to start skinning. And then after some hole-digging, some steep uphill skinning.

Then it was weeeeeeh downhill again (that’s me in that cloud of powder… somewhere).

And some more hole digging and food eating (leftover spaghetti pizza is a fantastic meal for backcountry skiing). There were great views off the back of Quartz Ridge.
