... ferry left Balfour at about 10am for the 35 minute trip to Kootenay on the other side of the lake.
It's a scenic drive the lake and on the way we stopped off at the Glass House. It was built by a funeral director in the 1950's out of 600,000 embalming bottles, novel but not particularly impressive.

We dined at the Hume Hotel, which at this point is a rather plain square brick building ...
... local peaks in Nelson. We grabbed some sarnies and started the drive up to the hill.
We arrived in Whitewater, another huge snowfall overnight, just before lunch and spent 30 minutes analysing the daily condition reports. Certainly the avalanche level had dropped by one rating but still at a level where you need to bring an extra pair of underwear with you. We checked the back country register to see ...
