Baldface Lodge | Nelson, B.C.

Although I've been riding the Kootenay pow for a lot of years, nothing compared to the snow quality that I found up at Baldface Lodge this past week. The home of the Red Bull Supernatural, Baldface has been blessed with hundreds of cms of snow so far this winter. This trip was their first tour of the season, and pristine lines were found at every turn. It may seem ironic that I don't include a single photo of snowboarding from a trip to one of the world's premier cat ski lodges, and that's because this trip was all pleasure and no business. You'll just have to fill in the blanks, but trust that there were some quality pow runs.

Big thanks to Jeff Pensiero, Guide/Powder-Tester Mark Karlstrom, Cat-Tamer Homey A, Faceplant Winter Ale for fueling the apres ski fun, and the rest of the Baldface staff and guests. You all made for a great trip. What a great way to round out 2012. Cat Two!!
