The Value Of Positive Attitudes and Plan B

Every year it has become somewhat of a tradition to ski the 26km Spearhead Ski Traverse. It’s almost a rite of passage for skiers and climbers from Vancouver to Pemberton.

The day was set, clear weather, time off, good avalanche stability and a fit ski partner (my brother Andy). What could go wrong? Nothing except a three-hour delay on the Sea to Sky highway (oil spill).

How do you spell torture? Two brothers sitting still in a car for three hours, realizing the Spearhead idea is out.

Life happens, plans change and due to the loss of time, we decided we still had time to ski a Spearhead classic — Mt. Pattison.

Plans were cut short, but with a positive attitude we still had a fun day out in the mountains.
