It's a little comical that my lost post title is exactly the opposite of this one. It's been nearly a year since my last piece and all I will say is life got busy. With a smidge more free time on my hands, I should be posting more content over this upcoming season. Now ironically enough this post is about me not being able to join up for the annual novelty Mcrea turns in September. I promised myself I wouldn't ski until conditions were are at least marginal this season but I may as well write about those who do.
Longtime friend and all-time personality Roberto, accompanied by Bryn got their September turns in on Mcrea. Mcrea is the classic Revelstoke early season spot with easy access and pocket glacier to guarantee the goods remain preserved. In true September fashion, it wasn't skis on until the toe of the glacier was gained. 10 to 15cm ( ambitiously ) had fallen throughout the night and the fellas timed it perfectly. The glacier it'self is only about 100m of vertical relief but it is September and pow was skied. Thanks to Roberto for sharing all these photos and ushering in the 2017/2018 ski season!
