Participant Information

The actual ski area might be decided after we get there and asses the conditions: there is the obvious ridge and the Nak bowl next door. Plenty of easy going lines if the conditions are touchy.

If the weather is better on Sunday , the date of the trip will change accordingly.

 

This is a trip for intermediate and advanced BC skiers only. We won't do any crazy chutes but you should be able to ski black runs under any type of conditions.


Please do not signup if you are not able to break trail in rotation, if conditions require that, of course.

Please be considerate and do NOT sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are at least an intermediate skier(can do black runs in any conditions, including trees) in the Backcountry. If in doubt about your capabilities send me a message and we can talk about it:) 

Will be moving at a moderate-fast pace. Not for slow people, sorry.
