BITS-friendly Ski tour (or a just a mellow day out)

Ring in the new year with a day in one of the prettiest valleys in the mountains. This trip is to the stunning Chickadee Valley. We will not do any turns, just tour around this stunning valley. We will stay in Simple terrain, so don't expect any turns. Just a beautiful day out in the mountains, with great views. We will do some transceiver practice and do a test pit along the way.
