It's summer of 2004 when I first ring up White Grizzly Lodge for information about a trip. A friendly, French-Canadian voice answers the phone and gently quizzes me about what I'm after and where I've skied. "Do you want to do steep trees?" she asks. Little did I know that by saying "yes" -- and signing on for my first tour at White Griz -- I would be giving birth to a full-blown obsession with those steep trees and the deep powder that makes them fun. This year, I went back for the fourth time. Here's what I found:

...And plenty of money shots...

 

 

...And even here, miles from the nearest lift, there are opportunities to jump the queue...

 

 

...While showing off my new skis.

 

 

It wasn't always faceshot deep this time 'round, but it was getting close:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You only see the sky in quick bursts (like here), then it's back into the woods...

 

 

...For more of what you came for:

 

 

 

 


 

 

Above all, White Grizzly -- and its unique people -- still put a smile on Prickly's face:
