“When you know better you do better.”

Skin in to N joffre creek friday night/saturday morn and set up base camp at the creek(1.5hrs)

climb and ski the surrounding peaks and ice saturday sunday and monday if you convince your boss, or you're dirtbag. Base out of the valley bottom base camp.

The idea: I go up things pretty well, but the down never looks like it does in ski movies. If I help you ice climb, you help me ski? 

Ideally we have a relatively even mix of skiers/ice climbers who are interested in what the "others" do. Set some moderate top ropes, crag a bit, ski some moderate stuff. Everybody learns how to be better. 

If we have the skillz onboard there are some sweet ski lines, and some very sweet hard ice/mixed(free tibet.....lets go get it!) climbs to be done pre-or post eating it downhill and hacking apart wi3. 

equipment required: everyone should have camping/life equipment, avi gear, technical crampons, tools(beg, borrow, steal.....in that order) and bc skis obviously.


trip is hugely condition dependent and I will make the call based on group input and a 3 day forecast. If you are interested in this in general, send a message and express yourself!(your interest)

message if you have questions
