Pump Peak ( First Peak of Mount Seymour )

This morning I snowshoed to the top of Pump Peak which is the first of three peaks on Mount Seymour. After the snowfall on New Year’s Eve there was lots of fresh snow on the trail. On the summit I was pummelled by high winds and blowing snow. As I headed up the trail, overhead flew the helicopter that rescued two skiers who went out of bounds on December 31st. They had contacted North Shore Rescue by phone and were told to stay put at a supply cache. After spending the night in ‘Suicide Gully’ they were picked up by the helicopter this morning. It must have been a cold night for the two skiers. Click on the photo to see a larger version.
