Conditions and weather look good for a ski summit!

Let's try to get up Healy Pass Peak, a small mountain just north of Healy Pass. I am hoping we will be able to ski to the top, but if the ridge is wind-blown we may have to take the skis off and hike to the top. We will keep the skiing fairly mellow - there are some short but nice runs down from Healy Pass.

Approx round trip distance is 20 km, 900-1000 m of elevation gain.

You must have AST 1 as a minimum, plus be a blue run skier, and have a fitness level and backcountry experience suitable for the objective. If we have never skied together before, please send me a brief summary of your training and experience.

We will have an early 6:30 AM meet up near the Petro Canada at Hwy 1 & Hwy 22, at the access road just off Hwy 22. Here we will sign waivers before heading off to the Sunshine parking lot.


Required Items to Bring:
Skis, skins, transceiver, shovel, probe
