South Face Mount Kent


Approached summit from the Black Shale Creek Suspension Bridge. We deviated right before crossing the bridge on the SE side and stayed on the south face. Really challenging dense tree areas on the lower part of the mountain with steep inclines. It mellows out and has nice open glades mid and upper mountain. The snow was really nice and powdery without slabs. There are beautiful runs near the gully (where the bridge strattles) we had some fresh powder that had a few tracks on one side - then you hit the thick trees again on the lower section of the mountain. The views are incredible. Amazing day.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Steep slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.
