Kieren becomes a professional member of the Candian Avalanche Association

Just a quick note. We just got back from our holiday to find that I was accepted as a professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association. This is the highest qualification in Canada at present. It also requires a high level of professionalism and ongoing professional development. Looking forward to doing some more research and work in this feild.

New Mountain for 2009/10

Here is a shot of one of the aspects of the new mountain that we plan on opening for 2009/10. This is the east aspect. The North aspect is a 120ft cliff! with some skiable chutes. The south is open and cruisey. The west is good tree skiing. I think that we will call this mountain - claw mountain. This will be the 6th mountain that we have opened. You can also see the east aspect of Mt Mackie in the Background.
We think that we will also open a seventh mountain this year. But will keep you posted on how it goes.


Kieren in Rogers Pass

Spent yesterday in Rogers Pass - was a great experience. The objective was to see some new terrain and do some training for my final ski guide exams. I caught up with Rob Elliot - a Local of Revelstoke and a great guide who works with Big Red Cats. Here are some Photo's of some of our turns.

This photo of RipCurl athlete Jen McGoldrick shows some of the lovely views and fresh snow at Big Red Cats. Jen came out with photographer Will Pursell in early March - the next photo will show Jen in action, but I really liked the scenery in this shot..
