Description:

Hello! Rich and I are keen to get out for a day of backcountry skiing on Sunday, probably to the Coquihalla area.

At the moment, Thar Peak or Markhor Peak are looking likely options.

Anyone keen to join us? Our car is fixed now too!

This is an intermediate trip and we'd ideally like folk who already have some backcountry experience and are reasonably fit. We're still fairly new to this ourselves, so the trip would be sort of leaderless (i.e. a small group of people who can look after themselves more or less). We'd also want to be traveling together, at a fairly decent pace (not superhuman, just fast enough so we can get up and down in good time). You should be familiar with avalanche risk and know how to use your beacon, probe and shovel etc.
