Nigel Pass has always been on the tour schedule as far as I can remember; and since the older tour leaders had not offered to lead, it I did. Jeff kindly offered to assist and so we had a trip. The Ramparts Hostel has a new- to- us- hostel parent, nice guy from the east.
Minus 20º Celsius temperatures didn’t deter a dozen club members from heading up towards Nigel Pass for the first back country trip of the season. The initial plan was to spend Saturday doing turns at Parkers Ridge but some prior scouting on Friday by Vance and Derry found that snow conditions were not favorable for turns so we switched to Plan B and headed for Nigel Pass.
