Pro skier Félix Savard-Côté has traveled west of his home in Quebec and is exploring the backcountry summer skiing scene in Yukon, Canada.
His most recent video shows him carefully descending a slushy and tight couloir on Mount Matheson that sits on the border of Yukon and British Columbia.
The snowpack doesn’t look awful considering it’s July.
Caption translated using Google Translate: “Here is the Gopro video of the last photo I posted of mt Matheson. Superb ski quality. Good steep slope skiing in the summer.”
Check out these other lines Savard-Côté has been able to pull off in the melting snows of the Yukon.
Seems like a few things have been consistent based on the video titles: the snow is decent, the air is hot, and the mosquitos have been terrible… 😆
“So that’s it, it’s summer and the ski season is still not over. Here is a decent luxury to start the summer on the right foot. Also, I was going to forget (or not) but winter has just fallen into the spotlight. The days will start to get shorter again!”
“This descent is for our mosquito friends. I am happy to realize that they are there and well. Health to all mosquito families! I play pranks …. It’s just that mosquitoes are particularly intense during this time. We’ve never seen that in fact. In short, it’s finally the “sun cup” season! The transition from spring to summer skiing is finally over. The skiing has been excellent for the past few days and it is far from over!”
