Backcountry skiing in Whistler. I think this is Cowboy Ridge we're ascending. The runs on Blackcomb are visible on the right in the background. To get here we got a backcountry pass (one ride up) for Whistler and then headed east over the Musical Bumps. Some of the Musical Bumps are now lift serviced rather than backcountry (as of 2006 or 2007), but Cowboy Ridge isn't, and it was great skiing.
