Trip Planning Questions

When did you do an AST, have you practised recently?

How many years have you spent backcountry skiing?

Do you have a reliable vehicle and snow chains? I'm not 100% sure of road condition toward trailhead.

Participant Information

Day trip up to Black tusk area. 

Very early start to make the most of the long slog up to the meadows. Depending on the group pace and general conditions we will either ski the meadows beneath black tusk or head towards Panorama ridge. 

No summit objectives, just a day out to enjoy the sunshine and some nice turns. 

We would start at Rubble creek, which should be plowed up to the trailhead. 

Pace will be quite fast, all members need to be experienced backcountry skiers. Will likely be returning in the dark so please bring your headlamp.
