What an amazing day! Ben, Dave, Scott and I set off to find an alternate route up Evening Ridge and the Whaleback. It was so much simpler than I ever thought it would be. We just followed ski tracks that were heading in the right direction (uphill – what else?) and eventually, we got there.
The day was amazing – the sky so dark blue it was almost black. And here’s the great thing about going up this “new” way – it’s the sunny side! We had our jackets off in no time and were perfectly warm even though it was minus six!
It was beautiful and then it got more beautiful and then – yes – even more beautiful.
We got to the very top of Evening Ridge and then Ben and I set off to do the extra – the top of the Whaleback. And oh my – this last bit is so worth it. Words fail to describe how beautiful and magical this place is.
I don’t even think the photos do it justice.
And, of course, coming down was amazing fun (and fast.) I do believe I only fell 5 times. But who’s counting!
