Years ago after skiing 5 days in the Tonquin we headed to Jasper for dinner. I rarely buy souvenirs but I couldn’t pass up an Ice is Nice t-shirt. The design was cool an ice climber in silhouette. I had that for years until it basically rotted off my body.
That was in March and March can be pretty cold in the Rockies…. any way here is a shot of famed Norwegian ice climber Slim Doag….in the Canadian Rockies eh. There is good ice in Oslo too….apparently.
Just as an aside American ice prodigy Jeff Lowe, a real famed climber of monumental proportions upwards of a thousand first ascents including the Himalaya has been fighting MS for the last 10 years…that sort of just blew me away found that out just recently.
