G3 Genuine Guide Gear was excited to be a sponsoring partner of this year's Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder fest in Nelson,ÊBC. This year's event was a great success, capturing and celebrating all that we love about backcountry skiing in the Kootenays. G3's Nelson based engineer Cam Shute was our man on the scene, and from his report below, we're guessing everyone had a pretty good time... Well another Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Fest has come and gone, and it truly lived up to it's name this year. Whitewater got pounded by a storm over the three day festival and 62cms of low density pow was dumped on participants making for an epic weekend. What made it even sweeter was that we had not expected so much snow and had just come out of a two week drought.
