Looking for new terrain and some late season snow, a few of us at Shaggy's set out to backcountry ski deep in Ontario's Algoma region on the northeast shore of Lake Superior. The snowpack was melting, but holding well for the weather. A few large bluffs may have sent us bootpacking, but we finally found some skiing on a sunny spring day. This is Our Way of Life!
