SWS - Sunshine With Snow

Because a day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

SWS Selkirk Wilderness Skiing March 11, 2013

We are up at Selkirk Wilderness Skiing for a few days this week and if day one is any indication, we are in for a treat. We arrived Sunday evening to a brown and Spring-like valley bottom. We were assured that just a few hundred metres higher that the landscape was very much winter. After a short cat ride we realized they were right.

Day 1 - Monday morning we woke up to fresh blue skies with a dusting of 6cms on top of another 20cm up high. Did I mention it was sunny? After another fantastic breakfast prepared by Melissa and her kitchen staff and we were off.

The day brought turn after turn of fresh powder with an epic sun drenched Selkirk backdrop. The one thing we just can't get over here is skiing incredible terrain with unparallelled views every run we skied.

Now we are getting ready for another freshly cooked and locally source meal from the SWS kitchen. Tonight we will make new friends up here at the lodge and all try to figure out how much snow is going to drop over the next couple of days...

Here are just a few images from the day:
