Fresh Snow

The mountain in the foreground is Joffre Peak ( 8927 feet ) and Mount Matier ( 9131 feet ) is in the background. In the middle of Joffre Peak is the Aussie Couloir which people ski down when the conditions are right. To the left, below Mount Matier is the Anniversary glacier. If you look closely you can see four backcountry skiers making their way up the glacier. The fresh snow made the mountains look beautiful, but there was the real danger of avalanches.

Mount Seymour

Last night we received some heavy rain in Vancouver and I knew it would be snowing in the mountains. Early this morning I snowshoed up to the summit of Mount Seymour and it was difficult breaking trail and carrying all of my photography equipment. However, it was worth the effort because as the sun rose the clouds started to burn off and combined with the fresh snow it created great conditions for photography. On the summit where it receives the most snow and the winds are strongest there were some beautiful snow ghosts. It was a great day and after all that exercise I will sleep well tonight. Below is an Envira gallery of images. Click on the first photo in the top left hand corner and then use the left and right keys on your keyboard to move through the gallery of images.
