More Ski Videos in Hell Roaring Canyon: The Faceplant and The Bivy

We were getting tired by the afternoon and frustrated with the terrain traps we encountered, which kept adding miles on to our trip. Here is a short clip Norm took after my, umm, classic faceplant.

Shortly after the faceplant, we realized we were not going to make it out. Fortunately, our walkie-talkies were able to reach Haley and Jeannie just for a moment, and we notified them we would be staying overnight. We tried not to seem alarmed so they would not worry. That worked. We did the same for ourselves, and just tried to make the best of the situation.

  1. Thankful you and Norm survived your unplanned overnight stay in the mountains…and that you made the best of the situation…I would have hated to think that you could have been up there alone…what a long night that would have been.

  2. P.S. the video did not show the “face plant” and I was so looking forward to a good laugh at your expense…just kidding! Glad you survived that as well…love your spirit and determination!
