|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 Gondola at 8 am (upload at 8:30 am). We will wait for those who need to buy a pass (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.
No beginner skiers please - you should be able to comfortably ski a black diamond run.
We will not be skiing routes that require extensive travel due to limited daylight.
I will try to match riders with carpoolers, but will not be meeting at the carpool myself. Thanks.
