There is always someone faster than you, likely just not us! Us slowpokes may be faster some day, but are happy with 200-250 v-m/hour ascent rates. If you'd like an easy and friendly paced 'slowpokes' ski tour, come join us!
The plan is to tour up to Taylor Lake then on towards Panorma Peak but stopping well short of the peak, likey just below tree-line. This gives us about 150 vertical-m of glade skiing on mellow (≈25 degree) slopes above the lake. Total for the day is about 7 km in and 750 v-m up.
We may get a bit above treeline to make it more interesting, if conditions, terrain and group desire allow, travelling on ridge top for safety. With current conditions, however, conservative terrain selection below tree-line on mellow slopes appears to be the way to go.
