Hiking pays off for the best runs at the Lecht.

Becky and I headed over to the Lecht today for a bit of fun on the snowboards, despite moaning about the lifts and queues I had a good day. The best runs as usual were sniffed out by Becs as she had me off walking from the top of the chair to the old lift station over on the right as you look up at the Lecht. From here we were able to make our way down some unlisted runs and put the first tracks into powder albeit wet.
The weather was great, and once away from the crowds the place had a spooky feel to it. The ease at which Becky shot down the off piste let me know I still have a lot to learn. The best way is to watch the masters though!
