@BobinCH, looks lovely. Not too much Alpine? Saw some steep pitches...

Otherwise, as far as I am told, CMH Galena is an excellent lodge for lots of trees and little alpine.

We had a blast, and I’ll be returning as soon as I can raise the entirely disposable funds Happy

I did "Northern Escape" at the end of the season - their closing week. Mid April conditions were nothing like late-season should have been (a good thing). Several operators are running later next year, perhaps because this year late-season was so good. I do believe their maximum weekly vertical was achieved that week wink None of it's particularly "packaged" - you'll not find many tourists up there. Probably not the best sort of place for novices, but otherwise excellent.

Very good for late season.

That part of BC has been on the list for some time

That said I'm more than happy with my "lot" and I'm even leaving the French Alps for a couple of weeks in Japan, so watch the French Alps have their best ever season.


Yep. What lottery numbers do you suggest this week? wink

I was trying to be slightly less pushy there, but no matter wink

The conditions were unexpectedly good. That video was the only day of sun I think. Mostly trees, one day we had to use their cat backup as it was dumping. They will have lost money on the "unlimited vertical" deal.

I shall go back to the more northerly bits next season. Transport etc is easy as there aren't really any tourists, and although I didn't visit the local hills I expect they're good and everything is likely cheap as chips (although the chips may not be great, but that's a different issue).

I ended up going to Alagna in March with James Orr Heliski (www.heliski.co.uk), on a trip hosted by Graham Bell. Open declaration - this trip was free for me as I wrote an article about it and do content work for James Orr.

This is what Graham had to say about the trip. Personally, I had a great time - only two helidrops, but superb backcountry environment.

Have been to tordrillo mountain lodge, utterly brilliant but eye wateringly expensive.
Expect down days as no tree skiing but when the sun shines its unbelievable good, if you have a good group.

Looks plenty steep and Alpine to me!

i think Tordrillo is where Richard Permin records a lot of his amazing footage: https://instagram.com/p/Bi1r7rIBh8a/

Would love to go there but Alaska seems to be at another level in terms of cost and weather risk

That's true enough, but then again it's £1500 v. £5000 - long weekend v. a week plus. You pay your money and you take your choice! Blush

@BobinCH, yeah, the AK reputation seems to include a lot of sitting around waiting for the weather.
