(Carpool Departure: 05:30 AM @ Canada Olympic Park )
A partner fell through, so a last minute posting... The plan is to
ski to Scott Duncan on Friday, ski over to Balfour on Saturday,
climb it, possibly ski the east face if it looks good, likely just
take the ridge back down. Either option is possible. Other
objectives include Niles and Daly. You should be a really good
downhill skier, reasonably fit with knowledge of crevasse
rescue and AST 2 to take on this trip. Some knowledge of the
terrain you are getting yourself into is probably also a good
idea. Cost is 30 dollars.
Required Items to Bring:
Transceiver (3 antennas only), probe, shovel. Ski
gear and layers, Glacier kit, axe, crampons, overnight gear for
an unheated, but sufficiently pleasant hut.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Sun glasses, sun screen, water proof shell.
How to Get There:
Carpool Departure Time:
Canada Olympic Park
