(Carpool Departure: 07:00 AM @ Carpool lot by COP)
Let's go for an early season tour. If avalanche
conditions are low to moderate we will try to
get some turns, but if conditions are
considerable we will go for a tour.
We are currently thinking the backcountry
outside Sunshine (Wawa Ridge or Twin Cairns),
Healy Creek or Helen Shoulder. The final
decision will be made by the group at the
carpool on Saturday morning.
If it doesn't snow as much as expected we will
cancel the trip on Friday night.
Please be aware the the snow pack is low right
now so skinning below treeline is a bit of a
bushwack. If you are uncomfortable skiing out a
luge track with tight trees I would not sign up
for this event.
Required Items to Bring:
Pack for a full day outing at an average pace. Avi
gear, emergency first aid kit, food, water,
