A great three day traverse, with big lines, winter camping and likely smiles all around if the weather and avi cooperates.
Plan is to drive to Rogers Pass on Friday morning drop into the Discovery Centre, shuttle a car to Bostock parking lot, and then skin up to Balu Pass, drop into the valley and set up camp. Saturday ski over to Catamount Pass, and then set up camp with a goal of some turns time permitting. Sunday, skin up to McGill Pass and ski out.
If interested in joining the trip and we have not skied together before, send me an email with your backcountry and winter camping experience. Participants will need to be in shape for travelling with pack, shared tent and winter gear plus willing to contribute to group decisions and navigation.
Wilderness Pass, skis/board, skins, boots, poles,

antenna), shovel, skins, food for three days and
Recommended Items to Bring:
