Default TR - Blackcomb Backcountry - Phalanx Glacier

Now that February is almost over we figured we should do a tour in Blackcomb before the season ends...

View into Spearhead Glacier from Don't Swill.



You wouldn't believe how many tracks were in there! It was like inbounds!



The 200m climb up the stairmaster was sweltering!



This led us into some not bad meadow skipping. We didn't venture too high as the snow pack was thin and wind scoured. The facet layer and low snow pack below 1900 on the NE aspects was pretty predominant too.



getting back around to Blackcomb Glacier was somewhat bony too...



It could have been April with the weather!

Hiking is ok when you can't ski or ride

Wow, that snow pack sucks for you guys! I'm sure this past week will get you some good skiing in for the next little while
