Description:

 

I have not been in the mountains lately. Now I got a new pair of skins for my skies and I'd like to go to a day trip ski touring on either Red Heather (Elfin Lakes) or Taylor Meadow. Apparantly, it is good snow up there.

I cant do overnight, that is why I'd like to do it quickly just for Sunday. Depending on the avalanche condtion, we will decide what slope to hit. It will be an early leave and comeing back late. But we will not ski in dark.

I am not sure if this trip will be beginner frindly or not. You don't need to be a strong skier, but you need to know how to ski, have AST-1 or equivalent.

 

This trip is just for me to get out, try my new skins and have some fresh mountain weather. Dont expect a big ski day! Some truns...
