Description:

Hey all you lovely people!

 

As the finials are over and I'm getting kicked out of residence, what's better than go camping and skiing?

 

Me and my boyfriend really wants to go to the Duffey as we have heard so much about this marvellous area past Pemberton! I have never been there, so therefore we want to gather a slightly larger party to enjoy camping and skiing in (hopefully!) amazing weather.

 

The plan is to drive to Duffey Lake Rd on March 29. (Saturday) and set up a "base" camp somewhere we decide. Then spend two or three nights (update: aiming for two nights), to get at least a couple days of just skinning and skiing and maybe ascent a peak or two, before driving back to Vancouver on Monday or Tuesday.

 

Exactly where to ski I haven't decided yet, but I'm gonna do my research between reading for finals. Or if any of you have some ideas you are more than welcome to let me know!

 

The trip should suit advanced beginner, intermediate and advanced backcountry travelers I guess, ofc with avi training. I'm a decent tele skier that loves to go uphill, while my boyfriend is a snowboarder that likes the downhill part the most. I have no official glacier training and have not done any scrambling with ropes, so if possible we want to find some peaks that can be ascended just by skiing and bootpacking.

 

Also, I don't have a car, so if anyone have, that would be perfect. If not, renting car(s) would be an opportunity.

 

Hope you want to join us on this spring adventure!
