Really stoked to be redoing a splitboarding trip into Cold Fish Lake in the Spatzizi Mountain Range in North Western BC, Tahltan territory. We tried last year but temperatures spiked to -60 at night on day five. All three of us suffered a fair amount of frostbite on our toes and had to turn around because of the risk of infection. We are pumped to try again with hopefully warmer temperatures.
The trail hasn't been traveled in over 69 years in the winter time. It's an old trail that the Tahltan people used to live on throughout the year before being displaced by the Canadian Government. The upcoming Sacred Headwaters film we're working on, with help from Spark R&D, shines a light on the story of the people here, the tragic displacement off the trail, and the resilience to continue to fight for the land. I'm looking forward to sharing it with you all this spring!
