Big thanks to Greg Hill and Aaron Chance for showing the TetonAT crew around Rogers Pass for a few days. With bluebird skies and new snow, we had to play it safe in regards to avalanches a little, but we were still able to enjoy the great ski touring the pass has to offer.

After a day of setting off many avalanches on McGill Shoulder with Aaron, we hooked up at the top of the pass for a tour in the general direction of 8812 Bowl. Our plans were slightly changed when we saw a fresh avalanche in the distance (see previous post), but we stayed focused and were still able to climb below Peak 8812 and ski the bowl. Here are some images from the tour. The next day we toured up the Illecillewaet Glacier and skied Youngs Peak. A classic tour for the area. More on that tomorrow.
