Introduced a couple of friends to skinny ski touring as well which made this start to the season even better. byJW

This trail climbs 650 vertical metres, giving a long and often wildly fast descent, where slashing out short p-turns sure beats snowplowing the steep parts. Photo by aka-bigSteve.

When the snow is thin, go skinny. BC skiers are turning lemons into lemonade with early season Nordic Touring.
