Springy Backcountry

So after a lazy morning, quickly coordinated a session with Will J to go up to Cardies. A bit of traverse, a bit of walking and there we are, Will J scoping the options. The snow was really wierd, from ice to sugar. Careful with those landings oi!.

After droping into some icy landings, it was time to build some stuff. Here’s Will hiking a little bit more to get a little bit more of speed for that kicker.

Shots and shovels in the bag, time to go back. Not before getting some soul shreding after the resort is closed and nobody is on the slopes.
