January 12, 2017 |

There have been cold and dry conditions for the most part this past week. The one exception was a day long storm that hit us Monday and brought an ‘almost reset’. It filled in the tracks nicely thanks to a bit of help from the wind, but you can still feel … Read More

Yet another amazing week of blower powder conditions right up to the handlebars.   Thankfully, the snow around Revelstoke has set up and created a great base to be able to actually get around and not get stuck every 30 feet. The sun has been out the last few days … Read More

I would need a thesaurus to look up all of the synonyms for “deep” and then I would use them all in one sentence to describe just how amazing this past week has been. We have had a series of storms flow through since just before Christmas up until now that … Read More

The riding conditions have been amazing these past few days! I would never say it, but some would almost say ‘too deep’! The high pressure finally got pushed out and on Sunday night and Monday we got hammered with well over 50cm of fresh, light snow. At higher elevations, this … Read More

Jack Frost is visiting us with cold conditions here in Revelstoke before Christmas this year! It has been a very chilly week with a dominating Arctic high pressure system hovering over us. It has been clear as a bell and beautiful panoramic views, but with that comes all the tracks. … Read More

Holayyyyy, conditions are cold! I hope everyone has been staying warm out there and has avoided frostbite in these conditions.  A good trick my momma taught me was to rub on Vaseline to avoid having your balaclava stick to your face! It snowed about 30cm last week and has been sunny since … Read More

The Avalanche Safety Disconnect

March 10, 2016 | 20

Remembering back to the days when I first started riding backcountry, I can honestly admit that I was somewhat naïve when it came to avalanche safety. I wore a transceiver and had a shovel and probe in my pack, and I thought I knew what I was doing. But it wasn’t … Read More
