Description:

Pelion has been on my list for years. A summit at the north of the stunning Tantalus range, it makes you start from nearly sea level with your skis on your back. We'll cross raging creeks, camp in the snow, and ski some corn. Maybe we'll even stand on the summit. Mostly, we'll be happy to be out in beautiful scenery with new friends. 

If you still need more stoke, check out these photos.

This trip is advanced friendly. You should have some knowledge of glacier travel and avalanche rescue, and must have a reliable self-arrest. Being able to survival-ski 30-35 degree slopes and camp in the backcountry are also necessary. It would be a good fit for someone who has done AST1, GS1, and Intro to Backcountry Skiing.

It will only run if the avalanche forecast is Moderate or lower and the weather is clear. If not, we can decide on a more appropriate location.

This trip will take place on the traditional, unceded territory of the Squamish nation
