Skiing the Mt. Strachan Rock Garden

There is still lots of snow above 3500′ but the 500′ above the parking lot is becoming patchy. Here we’ve found the last ribbon of snow on this south-facing slope — it is protected by the trees on the west side. It is also raining softly. My friend (in the video) is stopped in the first shot to pick up 2 toonies and a loonie that a skier must have lost in a fall last winter. At the end of this sequence, the slopes that appear in the background are the north-facing runs of Black Mountain. Can you hear the grouse… and me trying not to breath loudly (I’ve just skied this pitch)?
