|At the trail-head, it was hot before we even started|
The snow was just like this last season, the most marginal of all the 8-10 times I have skied up there for Canada Day. Our turns needed to be precise as the the chute was so narrow. But as Simon said "It was totally worth it!".
I had no trouble hiking up skiing down and hiking out the chute but I hit a wall after that and slogged all the way down the mountain looking at each step as a victory of progression. It was a suffer-fest down for me.
When we got home Simon jumped on the trampoline while I laid myself down on the living room floor. This was a mistake because I literally could not get up, I was so weak I could not even roll onto my side. All I could do was laugh at my plight and that hurt-a lot- particularly because I could not control the laughter. I guess I pushed myself a bit far.
|This is the chute we skied, photo taken a couple of years ago, this year we could only ski the top half.|

|This is about where we ran out of snow|
