The plan is to go ski somewhere along the Smith-
Dorrien. If avalanche and weather conditions
allow we will try combining the Purple Knob and
Hero Knob loops (up to 1200m elevation gain,
depending on starting point). If conditions are
Considerable or higher, or the weather is poor we
will likely yoyo whatever good skiing we can find.
If we find some beta that suggests ski quality in
K-country is poor will change our destination to
Pace for the day will be quick-ish (expect uphill
pace to be 400m per hour). It is supposed to be
cold on Saturday, the trip will be canceled if day
time highs in the valley bottom are lower than
-17C. See www.mountain-forecast.com
