A long time "bucket-list" goal of mine has always been to bike and ski Mount Seymour on the same day without any outside help. I pitched the idea to Eli Relke while we were ski touring this past winter and we earmarked the trip for Spring. Thanks to the MEC Rental program, we got our hands on bike trailers, loaded them up with gear and set off.

The plan was to ski one more blast of winter pow, to say goodbye to one of the most unpredictable and unstable winters I have ever skied or worked. My former patrol manager at Mount Seymour told me one day, "the thing with plan is it never goes according to plan." Those words have never been more true.

When I first moved to the North Shore I went for a snowshoe up Mountain Highway. At the time there was lots of snow right down to the yellow gate, I thought nothing of it. Over the years I've come to realize that opportunity was rare. So when the chance to ski tour on Mount Fromme presented itself last week, I jumped on it.

With the cold snap last week I was left with few options for skiing, even fewer options locally here on the North Shore.
Dawn Patrol: To go ski or bike at an unpleasantly, perhaps even unnaturally early hour.
We loaded the Brento Wagon with four bros and gear and chugged our way up Mount Seymour at 6am. The plan was to ski up the resort for sunrise, and down the groomed trail. No pow, means no reason to go anywhere else; especially out of bounds.
