Hailstone Butte
Kananaskis
May 12, 2002

We set off to do Sentinel Peak but after hiking up the road west of Hailstone Butte we realized the snow was too deep to go that far. We settled on traversing Hailstone Butte.

After ascending – post-hoiing in deep snow – the north end of Hailstone Butte we hiked along the ridge and then dropped down a drainage at the south end on the west slope.


A whole lot of white on this trip

Traversing the ridge south


The ridge seems endless.


I create a snowball. Mouse over to see what happens to it.


I start building another, larger one but it became too big to move (mouse over).
