For some reason even though I am headed to B.C. for a week long avalanche course in the heart of the legendary Selkirk Mountains my mind is still stuck in Valdez. With plans lining up for all my buddies to join me again at Tailgate Alaska this April and the epic sunny day views I had on Tuesday from Thompson Pass, it’s hard to think about riding anywhere else..

I am sure this will change as soon as the wheels land back home in Oregon where I will pack my car and drive north to B.C.  The area I am headed is one that Robyn and I have picked out as a place we would love to live.  Beautiful mountains, wilderness, small towns, great skiing and great climbing.  The lodge I am staying in for my course couldn’t be sweeter. They will pick us up in a heli on Sunday for a 7 day stay. This course may also be my meal ticket into the Avy industry in Canada, and I will meet a lot of big names in the game.  I am super excited and can’t wait to share some pictures along the way!
