Nope. No extra pucks. You could grab some at Prior I bet! We should do both next week. Tour one day climb the next.

ya i had some pretty sweet light the other day on my way to the valley. It's gotta be early there before the sun goes around..

Kid Cormier-we took your name in vain -when Jim was writhing in pain on the snow i gave him a sceptical look and said "10 minutes or i'm outta here dude"

Hmm pretty open. I was thinking about climbing mid week maybe and been trying to organize touring partners since my sled is still on the injured list. I must warn you though I snore so bring your earplugs ;)

A BIG shout out to the volunteers of North Shore Search and Rescue ! ! !

After wrecking my knee, Greg enlisted some snowboard youts who post holed a trail that allowed us to grovel back up to the top. By then the NSSAR were at the top and a BIG thanks to Stan for doing all the first aid checks in a casual but pro manner.

Tim Jones was next up and we decided it was easiest and best that I bum slid down the slopes and hobbled with help through the flats. a patroller on a sled took me to the parking lot from the top of the XC area. Greg did great pack management and early logistics which made things smooth for everyone.

Again, a HUGE THANKS to the NORTH SHORE SEARCH and RESCUE ! Really pro and I'm in their debt for helping me.

THANK YOU !
