Lundy Canyon, May 27, 2017

Lundy Canyon is an area that I have looked at for years and had hiked around in the summer, but had yet to ski. Rather than ski the "low hanging fruit" near the shore of Lundy Lake, my wife encouraged me to head further up the canyon for more of an adventure.

On the approach Stev looks across the pond at waterfalls and beyond.

It was great to finally ski Lundy Canyon. There are so many great lines to ski back there. A return trip seems certain.
