wow
glad you made it safely
that trip can be very scary and this year the weather was as nasty as it gets here on the wet coast
big hills on that trip

yeah it was really bad driving there, we got to the last summit and got turned around becuase of an avalanche, had to drive back up to nelson and take the ferry across kootenay lake. very slow go for most of the way there, the drive back was okay, roads were much better, except thru manning park, just one big sheet of ice.
we didnt end up taking the sled, didnt want to have to deal with a trailer on those roads, their neighbours have sleds , derek did a small amount around their yard.

Nice shots of the trip! You probably went through Castlegar on the one day flights were actually able to get out. They don't call it Cancelgar in the winter for nothing! :D I helped a buddy move back from Cranbrook (to Castlegar) 2 days before New Years Eve, roads weren't too bad, at least the pass was open.
