Failed to Reach Port Hardy

My original destination was Port Hardy. Yet, north of Discovery Channel clouds were increasing and soon coming down lower.

So, this chicken pilot did a nice 180 degree turn over Kelsey Bay, small community on Vancouver Island and called on 126.7, Pacific Radio for destination change to Powell River, which was in the sun on the contrary.
On the way I checked Freil Falls, impressive forked water columns.

1st. Peak of Seymour in Deep Fog.
At Brockton Peak the fog was so thick that I had to be careful not to lose orientation. Mind you, Seymour is my mountain. I had been there a hundred times before.

Vancouver in Winter. That whitesh part is the harbour with some freighter boats visible.

Test run of Black Diamond Skis and Super Light Dynafit Bindings

I didn't believe what some expert skiers had told me that an equipment would make a difference.
Today, I realized I was wrong. Fat skis and the state of arts bindings rejuvenated an old skier by a decade.
