Chasing Winter

Sophie & Pete travel through Canada, USA, Austria & France seeking out the best skiing and adventure they can find.

Pete Oswald

After a brief tease of NZ summer, we were leaving on a jet plane to Vancouver, Canada. It was early February, and we were straight off the plane, sorting out our gear and driving up to Pemberton with good Kiwi friends of ours; Tom and Claire. We were joined by Boots, Catkin (Soph's cousin) and James. After a night at Sophie's brother's place in Pemberton were had an early skin into a backcountry hut at Duffy Lakes.

The snow gods had delivered, and we scored freshies right to the back of the hut. Avalanche stability was not great, so we stayed in the trees and skied with caution.
