The plan is to ski the Bonney traverse.  The Bonney traverse is in Rogers Pass and traverses the south side of Mount Bonney over the Lily, Clark, Bonney Neve glaciers.  Peaks to ski along the way include Swanzy, Clark, Bonney, and Smart.

The traverse is 30 km and 3000m and is listed as an "epic mini traverse and local classic".  There are options to include more skiing, more distance and more vertical.  If we do the traverse in 2 days we won't ski any additional vertical/distance, but if we take 3 days we'll target a prime summit or ski line.

If you are interested please sign up and shoot me an email or phone me: and 403-607-7125. If we haven't skied together please include a brief blurb about your downhill ski ability, fitness, and whether or not you have done any glacier travel or winter camping.  Please note that no specific experience is necessary except a desire for adventure.
