Backcountry Adventure - Apex Mtn Peak Bowl

Took opportunity for a backcountry adventure with local Emanuela along with her visiting friend Yosh. Mid-week, we parked at the top parking lot at Apex. Started skinning up low grade into the trees to the top of the highest chairlift.

From the chairlift, we traversed down, then skinned up close to Apex Mtn Peak for a few first runs. No-one else out there. Perfect weather day... maybe -5C average, mostly sunny, fresh powder on top of a solid crust. About 1000m elevation gain day with alot of laughs!
