The snowy Sentinel

The snowy Sentinel

Doug Chatten, Professional Ski Patroller and Mont Ambassador, took the new Mont Sentinel Daypack out on the NSW Snowy Mountains Main Range over the weekend and had a great time skiing the powdery slopes of the Sentinel.

I took the new Sentinel pack to the Sentinel today & they were both fantastic! Good powder skiing off both the North & South facing slopes. Took a line off the peak to the North down to 1700m in Strzelecki Creek. Gained the ridge then dropped down the South side from the saddle. Very good quality snow. The temps were very low, real cold, hence the snow quality!

The warmer temps & drizzle last week have opened the creeks up here & there down low causing some hazard in the gullies but there is still a stack of snow in the bowls & up higher. Yesterday’s snow covered the Main Range with freshies to be had on most aspects.

I love the stretch pocket on the front for stowing & easy access of my crampons. The shoulder stretch pocket is perfect for stashing Gu energy sachets. This pack is very comfy & light weight without sacrificing functionality. There’s just something nice about a canvas pack!
