Border Crossing in the Dark of Night

Tomorrow’s route will take us from Bellingham, Washington, to Pemberton, British Columbia. The crux comes getting through the checkpoint at Lake Alice, in Canada, where the Powers that Be have determined there will be no passing without a permit. The permit says you have a parking spot waiting somewhere up the road in Whistler or Pemberton. Yes, more Olympic madness.

We’re headed beyond the Games and up to Whitecap Alpine (WhitecapAlpine.ca)…and hopefully deep, deep snow. It’s been a little too warm (freezing levels up to 2200m!), but maybe we’ll find some cold, shady snow on north faces.

Check back for pics…and for all of you down in Colorado, go get some turns!
