So far there hasn't been an official VOC trip up the Duffey Lake Road and since it's practically my backyard, I thought I'd do the honour.
Location: Cerise Creek (we can be enjoy the benefits the recent VOC workhike to upkeep the trail), on the Duffey Lake Road, north of Pemberton.
# of People: The maximum group size for the hut will be 8 including me. If there is enough demand, 8 more can join, but they have to bring tents in case the hut is busy. It's a first come first serve basis, the first [b]8[/b] to commit will have priority for the hut.
Level of Experience: I will consider this beginner friendly but there are some exceptions. You need to be able to make it down a slope at a moderate pace and you have to know how to use your avalanche gear. If it's your first overnight hut trip, or first time on touring gear, thats all fine, just know your gear.
Avalanche conditions may be a little hairy as there is a lot of new snow with some persistent weak layers. Don't get too scared, there are ways to work around this.
You can check the avalanche bulletins for yourself
Forecast looks bleak but there aren't any other trips running this weekend so you might as well join and hope for a spot in the hut! (Plus with bad conditions, the hut won't be as busy)
There is no pretrip meeting. Sign up for commited begins wednesday at noon.
