Turns out this was saved as a draft for a while, I thought I had published it. Better late than never I guess! This is the story of my reading break. Instead of taking full advantage of my time to study for midterms and write papers, I left the coast and headed out to Fernie, BC for a whole bunch of skiing. The week involved 3 nights at Tunnel Creek Hut, a new hut built in the Lizard range.
We had low expectations about snow as it had been dry for a very long time, but with decent stability. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves some amazing snow that had not been sun-affected on quite a few aspects.
A glimpse of planetary peak through the fog gave us some ideas about places to explore, but the weather kept us below tree-line the whole time. We were lucky enough to get some snow during our stay which was a welcome surprise!
Pretty stoked that it is snowing out here! Finally!
What goes up…
…must come down!

It couldn't have been a much better week. Now back to school to recover from my holiday.
