Expedition Freshfields: Episode One
Posted on January 18, 2016

The Freshfields are a hushed touring zone in the Canadian Rockies, legendary for their looming peaks and late-season snowpacks. Located north of Golden, BC on the border of Banff National Park, the Freshfields are one of the largest glacial systems in Western Canada and sit below a crown jewel selection of jagged 10,000 to 11,000-foot peaks. Last spring, Eddie Bauer splitboarders Scott Newsome, Chris Coulter and Wyatt Caldwell linked up with ACMG guide Trevor Gavura to tick off a serious mountaineering mission in this remote zone.

Heli-dropping in close Crown Land proximity to the zone, the team set up glacial base camp on the Alberta/BC border of the National Park then waited out a massive spring storm in Pantheon Dome style with expedition grilling, snow structure building and plenty of shoveling. It was worth the wait. When the weather finally cracked blue, the team ticked day-after-day of trophy descents by skintrack access in this Great Canadian Divide region of towering summits and massive icefields. Expedition Freshfields is the three-part, extended cut story of their trip of a lifetime in this zone.

All week we’ll be running coverage of the expedition, today is round one. Check back Wednesday for episode two. —LYA Editor

    I would like to add that i have found this parti cular item on Amazon; however, Amazon is o ut of stock when it comes to particular sizes in the light pink heather shade. (They carry this i n stock in plus sizes and dark colors,but not in XS, SMALL, or Medium,.ironically the shades y ou would think would be in most demand…) i don’t understand – certainly the smallish siz es would be in great request. Please restock t hese sizes esp. with warmer season approchin g us, although, i personaly wear light shades. To reiterate, the tshirt i am interested is ED Women’s favorite long sleeve crew neck tshirt.
