Participant Information

Delayed/rescheduled from previous week due to poor weather. Alpine forecast from nearby Whistler looks good as does mountain-forecast.com.

Expect a high-gain, steep scramble in cold conditions. Appropriate experience, min AST 1, excellent fitness and proper gear (snowshoes, avy kit) are requirements. 

Ensure fresh batteries for headlamp as we hike up to the hut in the Friday night. A brisk pace will be necessary and expect snow starting below the lake (It's waist deep at the lake at of Oct 22). Early start for Weart Saturday morning on snow shoes. Current feedback (thanks Pep) is that ice axe and crampons are also now needed for the steeper sections.  Logistics & details to be finalized with participants
