Access & Maps
Hedberg & Associates 604-815-4555 seem to be the people using this road.
According to a post on Bivouac.com, the IPP construction is keeping the Ashlu-Main road clear of snow to Km 6. We should look at the maps at see if we want to take Ashlu A700/720 up to Buck Mountain to start (steep bushwack likely), and then ski down the road from Shortcut Creek (approx 18km) or the opposite.
There is a description of the route and a map on trailpeak.com which is pitifully small, so Matthew made it big here. He also made some 1:20,000 pdf maps on iMapBC (the .ssn files are saved sessions for the maps which can be loaded into iMapBC).
