DAY 7 14/05/2015 LET’S PLAY IT SAFE.

The weather was still beautiful here on Stikine ice field. We started the day with the intention to ski down a narrow valley which would bring us down to Dawes area on a quite straight itinerary. However, after scouting and looking the satellite images, we decided not to go the route planned because of the risk of avalanches and the danger of icefalls. Instead, we have opted for another route further East, smoother but physically pretty demanding. This option added a detour of approximately 30km. On the way, lots of steep mountains making this place pretty intimidating. We are now in the tent enjoying a warm meal after a 12 hour up and down ski day. Better safe than sorry, right?
