Snowboarding Mount Curry
Ross Berg | March 31, 2012 |

Last week in the Whistler area was all time!!  One of the best weeks of skiing i personally have ever had!  Great snow, good stability, perfect weather (except the few times we got stuck in a cloud on a summit…)  It cant really get much better.

After a couple day ski touring some of the bigger peaks on the Duffy Lake road we opted for a heli bump up to the shoulder of Mount Curry to ski the “Pencil Couloir”.  Europe has gondolas and we have helicopters.  Definitely a very civilized way of skiing some wild terrain.

Day went like this:

8:00 – Coffee/Breakfast at Lift Coffee Co in Whistler

8:25 – Arrive at heli pad in Pemberton

8:30 – Lift off of heli pad

8:35 – 2200m shoulder of Mount Curry

8:50 – Ski 300m alpine run

9:00 – Start boot pack to summit of Curry

9:30 -Drop in on North Face

11:30 – Arrive at Car

12:30 -Lunch / Beers in Whistler
