    Weekend Warriors

    By Kieran Crimeen

    A high pressure system poked its nose in on the tail end of some snow so the weekend looked like a great time to head up to the Columbia Icefields area and have another go at the Skyladder.

    After agreeing to leave Canmore at some stupid hour (1.45 for those interested) I went to sleep fidgeting nervously because a) it’s an intimidating route and b) the Backcountry Alpha aka Peter Knight would be in attendance. We howled up the Parkway, nearly losing a wheel that wasn’t bolted on properly and got underway at 4.30. I crushed the approach, dropping Joel and Peter for at least 20 seconds before they caught up and had me puffing to keep them in sight.

  • Skinning Technique - How to Start An Argument When Skiing Uphill

    Skinning Technique - How to Start An Argument When Skiing Uphill

    I love mellow skin tracks. I love being able to glide effortlessly up a slope while staying flat on my skis. Each time I went to Utah I found myself cursing about those "in your face straight up" skin tracks. It seemed like I spent my entire time on the highest riser position. Being on a race heel with only 1 riser, I cursed a lot. More efficient or not? I don't think there is an answer to that...

    Here in the Rockies we have long and flat approaches and I don't encounter many skin tracks that are too steep. Usually, if I can't keep going (with my race heels) it probably means that I should bootpack. I noticed from talking to fellow skiers that certain concepts are quite universal no matter how steep you like to ski uphill.
