I was once again invited to a ski trip from Benther (Ben & Heather). So I joined and went to Healy Pass in Banff. The weather was dull and that didn’t help to enjoy the view at all, so it was rather an exercising and more practice backcountry skiing day for me. We followed Healy Pass trail from Sunshine ski resort parking. Once we got there we did couple of short runs.
