Snow Plume

In Joffre Lakes Provincial Park strong winds on the summit of Mount Matier ( 2783 m ) created this snow plume. Below the mountain lies the Anniversary glacier which is popular with backcountry skiers. It was a beautiful cold morning with lots of fresh snow. Click on the photo to see a larger version.

Attack of the Clones

Recently I experienced a great day of Spring skiing at Whistler/Blackcomb. We were blessed with a lot of snow in the Coast mountains this Winter and it has been the ski areas second snowiest season on record. There hasn’t been much use for these snowmaking machines. When I saw them at the bottom of the hill, partially sunken in the snow, and all in formation, they looked like an attacking army in one of the intergalactic battles in George Lucas’s the Clone Wars (Star Wars).
