better safe than sorry

Let’s play it safe !
The weather is still beautiful here on Stikine. We started the day with the intention to ski down a narrow valley which will bring us down to Dawes area on a quite straight itinerary. However, after scouting and looking the satellite images, we decided not to go there because of the risk of avalanches and the danger of the icefall.

Instead we have opted for another route further East, smoother but physically pretty demanding. This option added a detour  of approx 20km.

On the way,lots of steep mountains around us making this place pretty intimidating. We are now in the tent enjoying a warm meal after a 12 hour up and down ski day.
Better safe than sorry : )
