|Let's go ski the Blackcomb Backcountry!
We'll see how the snow is, but I'd like to head up Blackcomb Glacier, over to Circle Lake and ski around there. We can boot back up and ski the other side of Spearhead Glacier then head to Husume Couloir for our ski out.
Meet at the Excalibur Gondola at BASE II (access via Parking Lot 6 or 7) at 8:30 am. To buy a pass, go to guest services next to the Whistler Village gondola. You must show your avalanche gear to buy a pass). All participants will have AST 1.
Note: if you need a buy a backcountry pass, please get to guest services EARLY. They open at 8 am. If you're meeting us but are in line for a pass or late, please text me and we will wait for you at Glacier Lodge. The latest we will wait for people is 9:30 am; there is simply not enough daylight to wait any longer.
