Pemberton BC Ripper Chris Ankeny reports on a early season hiking / splitboard mission.

A little report from up north..

Its been a wet October with little in the way of sun, we saw a window for some clearing last Friday and jumped on it. My bud John Chilton and I have been talking about hitting a classic line off Joffre Peak for years and this seemed like the time to go for it.

We utilized a recently revamped hiking trail that got us close to snow line and then were skinning at about 1700 m. By 2000m we were on the glacier and it was like turning on the “winter” button. Looked more like January up there in the alpine. We had fog, rain, and snow the whole hike until the base of the couloir where the sun popped and illuminated the majesty of the peak.

We punched up the 1500 ft couloir and summited with stellar views. The descent was like spring pow, slow mo and surfy, awesome first tube of the season! It was a killer day and such a great way to start the season. 11 hrs truck to truck and 5000ft vert and worth all the effort. The Gold Member Splitboard kills it. Thanks again for getting it under my feet!
