"Thigh Highs" - Kootenay Pass Style

POWDER DAY!  What an amazing day 2/27/2011 was.....the lightest deepest conditions of the season hands down!  After a huge dump throughout the night we arrived arrived at Kootenay pass ready for an epic day.  Plans were to run a lap on the frontside of Baldy Pk before returning to its summit for a descent down towards Crags Pk. basin.  Our third run of the day was from near the summit of Crags Pk.  The pics will tell the rest. 

GPS tracks in blue, approx runs in yellow (Crags Pk left, Baldy Pk right)
