SWS Runs of the day
Reg’s Ridge (Regina worked as a cook, guide and was the first lodge manager on the mountain), tops Allan’s list of five favourite runs. Reg’s follows the north edge of a steep ridge which falls into Thunder Bowl. It catches a lot of snow blown in by the south westerlies and is well sheltered from the sun through most of the season. Probably not such a nice walk in the summer months, it’s quite a different story if your mode of travel is by ski or board and the ground cover is 2 to 3 metres of snow (and your objective is down hill). Exhilaration is what you feel as you free fall through the steep open glades in the upper tree line all the way to the mellower lower slopes in the larger trees and open regenerating forests at the bottom of the run. Wow, can we do that one again?
