Rocky Point

Today’s tour, the 20th ski of the season so far, was all about the touring as the skiing was mostly not that great. The snow was a mix of very wind scoured on top and on other less predictable places with a mix of supportable – unsupportable crust and some sugar that made for the best skiing. Having said that there were a few good turns to be had on some of the north facing steeper shots provided you really center punch them to avoid the rocks. To the left is a picture of a shot just below Rocky Point, note the wind scoured band on top (click to enlarge). See the view looking up Catherine pass, I guess there is a reason we call it the Rockies...
