GSI shutting down

It is with regret that Gravsports Ice will be closing soon. Despite all of us here and many in the community being of the opinion that GSI is a better archiving system for information on ice climbing in the Canadian Rockies, this website will be shutting down.

Keeping the lights on and keeping conditions current no longer seems practical. We have tried making the forums more user friendly, and kept access to a vast array of beta and history contained on the website open to all. However low participation and increasing costs from both the website and hacker intrusions have lead us to this decision. Many thanks to Ian for past hosting costs. While the website will remain live for a short while you can expect it to disappear soon. We have talked of options to preserve the beta it contains however we offer no guarantees at this time.

We thank all our supporters, and everyone in the community for your past participation in GSI.
Will, Ian, and Grant.

        Drove by that area today to go skiing, it's a snowy winter wonderland up there right now. Wait till the wind strips it bare IMHO.

          Me and a couple of others went up Coire Dubh 3 day or so ago. Heaps of snow, not too deep to walk though, but it meant we probably climbed about 25m of WI2 ice total. The rest was all a snow plod. We did it in thick cloud, so the climb lived up to it's name and had a very "Scottish" vibe to it.

          With the poor viz, we weren't sure enough of which rock to climb, so we left the Integrale finish alone, and just downclimbed and rapped our way back down.
