Belated trip report

I spent Spring break skiing out of a backcountry lodge in the Monashee range of British Columbia. Here's a brief photo report. Brief because I was too busy climbing and skiing to dig my camera out my backpack, and it was too snowy to keep the camera in a pocket (the lens fogged up). Don't let deceive you, though. Whether you are an experienced backcountry skier or you would just want to try it out, Sol Mountain Lodge is the place for you. Beautiful terrain, deep snow, cozy lodge, excellent food, and most important of all, outstanding guiding by Aaron Cooperman. I came back fitter, a better skier, and hungry for more. I'm planning to go back early January 2008, when the snow is coldest and lightest.

I was in the Montana Rockies a few months back, but the camera failed.

We need to enjoy this while we can. I've been visiting the Rockies for over 40 years in the Summers and the change in glacial cover is disturbing.
