We really didn't 't get any spring skiing at Kicking Horse this winter. Except for a couple days, it was winter from start to finish. But finally the warmer weather hit a few days ago and with amazing snow coverage Patrick from Selkirk Sports joined me for a skin up the slopes behind Vagabond. We made it about half-way to the top and took about 1 and a half hours mostly skinning but in a couple spots we took our skis off and climbed up which made it a lot easier on the steeper terrain. After a short rest, we skied down which took us about 10 minutes with a number of stops. Awesome day and a great work-out. There may be one more trip up yet before we put away the skis.
