    With an ambitious goal ahead we had an early start, leaving Whistler at 5.30am. Myself and Ben were Pemberton bound to meet with Tom, then on to the Duffey to begin our mission. Using the snowmobiles we made fast ground along the Van Horlick drainage towards Snow Spider Mtn (making our way around some rather large avalanche debris!). When we could get no further by sled we transitioned to the splitboards and began the 5 hour walk to the Snow Spider summit. With temperatures rising and the huge recent snowfall, south facing aspects were starting to shed their weight, we kept to the ridge lines and made crucial decisions along our route. Hours later we reach the summit only to be welcomed by fog, a horrible sight after so much time and effort has been invested, we waited it out and it eventually moved on leaving stunning views of the valley below us and perfect visibility for our ride back down, and what a ride it was! SHLEPOIR YOU BEAUTY!! All shot using the Drift HD Ghost. Go buy one!
