Without further ado, here is part 2 of the ski trip!

  1. After a 2 day delay due to startup issues, the little cub is repaired and ready to go. Here we see it basking in the morning sun on the general aviation stand,

2. After we load our equipment in, we hop in the the little two-seater and take a quick shot of the sun hitting the control panels!

3. A brief taxi later and we are in the air, goodbye Victoria, B.C!

4. A view of the body of water between Vancouver Island and the mainland.

5. Some morning fog rolled over the mountains as the sun rose, what a view!

6. A couple hours later and we are flying over Kamloops, B.C!

7. Mountains πŸ”

8. Another patch of fog as we approach Jasper!

9. A view of the valley, before final approach!

10. A bump and a bounce later we are rolling down the grassy runway, after we come to a complete stop we will exit the aircraft and runway and begin this wonderful ski trip! Woohoo!

Amazing pics @Airborne_Canuck
Hard to decide which pic is the best
But #8 is the one I’ve chosen with outstanding mist scenery in the background

Thanks @Pingu @Pilot_Felix @tjb0709! It certainly was a fun route to fly and a highly recommend that you try something like it sometime!

And thanks @Butter_Boi, I’m glad you like them, and that makes me a little bit better about my delay, lol.
