Itinerary:
Please note the trip might change to Sunday, if the weather is much better for that day, so you must be flexible...
The plan is to ski the south side of the slopes coming down from Black Tusk. The actual peak is not in the cards, unless we have an easy going way in getting to the top: sometimes there is enough snow for a mild bootpack to the plateau,but most of the times is not that easy.

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.



Elevation gain: 1800m or so
Total distance:25km or so

Do not underestimate the effort: this is a full day event and we might have to use headlamps for the exit.
