Bagherra finally bagged

The big badass Bagherra was finally bagged. I am not 100% sure but I feel that this line has never been skied and is one of the proudest most badass line in Roger's Pass. Not only due to the descent but the ascent. I have attempted it a few times and been refused by conditions and confidences. But yesterday  group of boys from Golden and Revelstoke skied this line. I am not sure exactly where they went up nor  exactly where they came down. But I do know that they bagged the summit and skied back down. 9 dudes in total.

I had a busy week taking my Level 2 avalanche course and throughout the course the stability was amazing in the Alpine. I felt like it was one of those weeks where things were super stable and I hoped that objectives where being accomplished.

I am sure that lots of other amazing things were skied but this line was one that I have dreamnt about for years and I am a bit jealous of their adventure. Not that I am one to complain I have had years of wicked lines but this is one I have looked forward to.  Well done boys!

Nine people?

So who gets credit for the first descent? The first guy to drop in...or the first one back to the car.

Damn, Well done. Like many i did have an eye on that line. Having an eye on it and doing it are quite different things - hats off to the 9
