Basic outline:

Use a WB Pass to ascend the Blackcomb lifts and depart out the back door towards the Spearhead range.  The intended trip is a lap through the cham-chutes followed by an exit over Decker. Group dynamics, snow conditions, and weather may dictate otherwise.

Mandatory equip:
A pass of some sort to access WhistlerBlackcomb lifts
A reservation made at epicpass.com for February 15, 2021.
If you roll up intending to purchase a $65 Backcountry Access pass; you're still welcome but please understand that you may introduce delays.

Meetup and logistics:
07:45 meeting at exactly 10U 504025E 5550912N (please click the link). Once everyone is here, we will go for a 100m run down to the Blackcomb Gondola and wait for first lift; hopefully by appx 8:00. Carpooling is, for all intents and purposes, not permitted as per BCMC COVID-19 Guidelines.
