Description:

I finish exams on the 17th and want to try some tele-skiing. I may have access to a car (but it cannot do logging roads). I have very basic tele skills (I think I can survival ski things) But I have not actually ski'd tele (or any type of skiing) in years. I would like to go somewhere and see how rusty my skills are or whether I should just give up on tele and do AT. I would also be down for a traverse or a trip longer than just two days. I am available from the 18th to the 22nd. I would like to do this trip as one self sufficient car group to minimize faff and disorganization. I don't have AST-1 or really any avalanche knowledge or skills (though I am planning to study, and practice my beacon searches). 

If Ice comes in I would also be down to ice climb. I'm flexible.

Would be open to a bigger trip but i will only organize one car load, each car must be independent but we can go to the same place. Will organize via email/message borad/phone/trip agenda/occult methods
