The day was set, clear weather, time off, good avalanche stability and a fit ski partner (my brother Andy). What could go wrong? Nothing except a three-hour delay on the Sea to Sky highway (oil spill).
How do you spell torture? Two brothers sitting still in a car for three hours, realizing the Spearhead idea is out.
Life happens, plans change and due to the loss of time, we decided we still had time to ski a Spearhead classic — Mt. Pattison.
Plans were cut short, but with a positive attitude we still had a fun day out in the mountains.
