March 8, Kootenay Pass - Day 2

After our last day at Kootenay Pass, we decided to lay low and wait for the snow to return.  We took a day off from skiing, and went for a soak at the Ainsworth Hot Springs.   The next day dawned with about 7 inches of fresh, which we made good use of at Whitewater.  Once again, Whitewater rocks!  For an area that has only 3 chairs and no high speed quads it provides plenty of excellent skiing.

Friday morning was a drive day, but we decided to return to Kootenay Pass for a half day of touring.  Conditions were greatly improved and the sunshine was out.  We made three north facing runs, off Baldy Rocks, then headed for home.

Trees were a little
tight off the ridge.

Happy turns.


Last lap, snow is getting a little heavier
but still pretty nice.
