Buildering at UBC

Boris led a night-time VOC buildering trip on campus last week. Buildering aka 'croquet' is bouldering on buildings. Ask me why we call it croquet sometime. There are a number of routes on campus that are just fantastic! Boris took the most amazing photos so make sure to check them out.

For further buildering photos or buildering information check out buildering.net. This site has a lot of photos involving UBC buildings and VOC members (in particular, Arlin).

Cerise Creek Backcountry Skiing

I went out for my first adventure on AT gear in the backcountry during the gorgeous weather of this past weekend. Jordan, Richard, Mike Simons and I headed up past Pemberton to the Cerise Creek trail to Keith's Hut. We tented outside the hut and on Saturday we shredded the powder in a valley south of the hut between Joffre and Vantage peaks. The skiing was unbelievable. I'm hooked on the backcountry.
