Split into two groups again. Skied Holy Smoke, Muppet Show, Gong Show. Again more playful stuff, some in the trees trying to connect lines while watching out for pits or open creeks and some open patches of slope with some fun little roll offs or drops. Went off one that looked like it has a 60 cm drop but a good transition to land on. It ended up being almost 2 metres. Good snow. Good fun. Skied until dark. Had to use the emergency headlamp (PrincetonTec Byte) to ski down the last run to the lodge. That little headlamp does the job and it was really fun to ski with a headlamp.
Broke some more trail today and it all went well. Dug a put and did a compression test. Got the same results as the guide and the other skiers. Verifying AST1/AST2 learning.
Backcountry skiing (Alpine touring) 5:30:00  15.5 km (21:17 / km) +1620m 13:59 / km
Headed out as one group but then split. Skied Christmas, Rudolph's Nose, Monster and Where the Wild Things Are. Lots of lumpy stuff that wasn't totally filled in, which sometimes gave lots of things to hop off, while at moments it could be challenging to link up a flowy line. Good snow, good skiing, had fun.
Broke more trail and again got feedback of "that was fine" and "good work"; they seem to strive for generally good enough" on the track set.
The light got really low on the last run down.
Backcountry skiing (Alpine Touring) 4:30:00  13.6 km (19:51 / km) +1220m 13:42 / km
Today's objective was the Big Apple, a feature to the N/NW, opposite of yesterday. Overcast and the light was really flat, especially up high. Didn't bother going to the top and instead decided to find some skiing. Went down a glacial run (unnamed glacier). One of our guides went ahead for us in the flat light and fell slightly off the steep toe of the glacier. No consequences. Did a couple of runs. One had big pillows toward the bottom.
Broke some trail to get us out of the bottom of that run. When I asked the guide how my uptrack was, he simply said it was good. When I pushed him re: whether there was anything that could be better, he said no. I think there is probably still fine tuning to be had, but maybe these guides aren't expecting as much for recreational purposes.
Had a wicked double-eject when I skied straight down into a compression in flat light. The skis stopped dead and I sommersaulted. Good times :)
Had another pitch that had some wind effect on it but skied it aggressively and it worked out nicely.
Finished with a fun run though some steeper trees that had some fun things to hop off of. Followed Carbon a bunch when we would buddy up in the trees.
