The Smileys complete their 32nd summit – Bugaboo Spire East Ridge. At the end of the video, he’s eating raw cookie dough and she asks if he brought any for her.

I went into the Bugaboos in the winter with Johnnie Mac. We were towed in on our skis for the first 22 miles with a snowmobile – the part in the video on the dirt road.. Because it was winter and the porcupines were less active, we didn’t have to cover our car with chicken wire. It is an unbelievably beautiful area with notoriously bad weather.
