Bro's gone wild!

Just got home from one of the best trips of all time. I dont know if it was the best trip but the one with the most stories for sure. It was going to be a ski trip to rogers pass. But the Glacier park lodge had bed bugs so we all stayed in Revelstoke. The trip was on spring break so we got crazy! you know the whole, yeahhhhhh spring break!!!! So it was the "bro's gone wild" weekend. And it was wild! Connor, Marty, Melanie and I all jammed into the tercel wagon with 2 roof box's and 3 pairs of skis each and a ton of gear. No one thought my car was going to make the trip, but she made it with flying colors.
pack it out, pack it in, let me begin.........

light weight touring skis. check. Fat pow slaying planks, check. skate skis, check. skis, boots, poles.

jump on in! 

on the way we stopped in Kamloops to rock a skate ski at stake lake. Connor Curson "this is the best nordic center I've been too" Marty Lazarski "your car stinks"     Melanie Vaughan "Ricky, can I use your skis"

on our way up to the Asulkan hut. I think we were ten strong that day. 

Lunch at the the hut, I guess someone knew we were coming cause there was a fresh pot of chili on the table. 

on our way up to the 4 steps of paradise. its really called the 7 steps of paradise but some weather rolled in and there was little to no vis so we only went half way.  

yeahhhhhh Bros gone wild!!!!! at the top of the 4 steps. 

its a sleep country sale on pillows. 

this is on day two. Up by flat creek. maybe was my favorite day. lots of good snow. toby lost a ski and we all found it. and the ski out was just a ball. It felt like a back country park. The sky also cleared up a lot and we could see just how huge the rogers pass area really is. 

von on the up up.

on the down, with the pow pow. 

Troy just letting it rip. 

Luc and Christine just slaying the goods. 

Marty, Luc, and Troy at the top. About to go find Toby's ski. 

ski finding line. after probing for an hour we looked down the hill and  found the ski. It just went like 500ft down the mt on its own. nice one kanga. 

Day 3 we skied at mt pierce. It was closer to golden and we also found some more really fun skiing. 

Connor "red bull" Curson just going for it. 

This was a funny story. So I got Marty to drive my car and he ended up putting it in the ditch. we tried to get it out with shoveling and pushing and chains but nothing worked. then we used the skins and started making some headway, but these 2 dudes in a truck showed up and helped push and we were on our way. 

just crushing it. 

after the bed bugs at the pass and the koa cabins with no heat this is where we ended up. It was all good. the pub downstairs was just awesome. Next time we go Im going to crush the Mt man burger, its a 40oz beef patty on who know what kind of bun. anyhow if you eat it then its paid for and you get your name on the wall of fame and a free tee shirt. 

day 2 at the flat creek play park. brappppppp!
