Participant Information
Friday evening - drive up to the Diamond Head Trailhead & parking lot, skin as far as we can go that evening (perhaps to Elfin Lakes shelter - although based on my last crowded experience there, I may choose to sleep in the tent...).
Saturday - climb over the Saddle, descend north side of the Gargoyles, contour beneath Diamond Head and Atwell Peak to a campsite on the Diamond Glacier
Sunday - get up early, climb Garibaldi East Face, return to camp, ski back out the way we came (or alternatively, ski into Ring Creek, but then we have to climb back up to Elfin Lakes)
It likely goes without saying of course, but (at a minimum) you will need the following for this trip:
AT or Tele skis (or a splitboard) with skins
Beacon, shovel & probe
Crampons, ice axe, helmet, harness, 
Belay/rappel device, locking and non-locking biners, couple of slings
Crevasse Rescue/Extraction Gear (Texas prussiks, pulley(s), ice screw)
Please reply to the following questions:
1. Do have a suitable tent you can share?
2. Do you have a stove that you can bring along?
3. Do you have a rope suitable for glacier travel that you can bring along?
I will bring a GPS, map, first aid kit, satellite communicator, ski repair kit.
Please also reply to these questions:
4. Can you drive and, if so, how many people (plus packs) can you fit into your vehicle? The road up to the parking lot is now passable for 2wd and low clearance vehicles.
