Evening Ridge and Whaleback

I’ve had my eye on the Whaleback for some time – at least a year, I think. Today we did it: Simon, Peter, Ben, P’nina and I.

I was leading and kept following a ski trail that looked good. I was aware that it was taking us far over from our usual track up Evening Ridge – and, as it happens, it was a happy mistake. The track took us past the first bump and well on our way to the top of the first ridge. We then angled off toward Whaleback and summitted about 3 hours and 15 minutes after setting out. It was – in a word – glorious.

The weather was amazing. The views so very beautiful.

And then we came back – which involved a fair amount of tumbling and bum sliding. In other words, par for the course.

And that’s it – pictures can do the rest of the talking.
