I spent the Holidays up in the Monashees at Sol Mountain Lodge. It was my third year of trips to Sol in December. These guys seem to have a super reliable early season snowpack. The snow at the lodge measured three meters when we arrived and it snowed every day we were there. Aside from from the trail breaking issues associated with so much snow the skiing was incredible. The terrain is well suited to storm cycle skiing and despite some relatively high avalanche hazard days, we always found good steep terrain to be skied.
Aaron and Dave have been hard at work on the lodge and it shows. What a way to spend the Holidays! Here are a few images of christmas at Sol Mountain. Thanks Dave and Aaron!
