Access

Route

From the gate on the Mount Brew turn off, ski/walk up the road past an old mill, and take a right branch at 2.2km. The road switch-backs up twice then traverses up past the Dority Cr. spur at ~3km into an unlogged area. Pass through the treed area to the slash beyond. About halfway across the slash the road branches left to the Brew area, take the right branch up to Brandywine. The road passes through a second treed area, swings back again and into another large slash and then back again (NW) and traverses below Metal Dome's 'SE Ridge'. From end of the road contour about 0.5km into the meadow. From the end of the meadow, head west up to a ridge. This avoids the rather steep ice-field directly below Brandywine. Brandywine is then easily reached by skiing NW along the ridge.

Hazards

  1. Avalanche Hazard
  2. Tree growth and further development completely changing these directions.
