Skied some deep and light powder this morning with CBMG owner Jayson Simons-Jones. I conveniently forgot to charge my camera battery. So for once there are actually some photos of me! thanks JSJ.mike-in-anthracites-002

A really great 3-lap morning out, with no other skiers in sight.

Also,  I’m getting very attatched to my new Arc’teryx Arrakis pack. Notice the streamlined simple design and the complete lack of danglees (technical term). Drybag roll top like construction, with a pocket large enough to accomodate my BCA Traverse shovel and Black Diamond GUIDE 300 probe.

I think the 40L capacity is a little on the large size for a ski daypack, but because my kit often includes a Brooks-Range rescue sled and emergency tarp, full first-aid and repair kits, on top of the stadard ski fare, it fills easily.
