Duffey Lakes has some of the best skiing on the Coast, with a life times worth of faces, glades, and bowls to ski. Being the lazy person that I am, I'd rather carry a day pack than a heavy overnight bag. As a result, I'd like to do double day trips with car camping on Saturday night. Hopefully other people feel the same way. Given the nature of the terrain, smaller independent groups seem to work best. My idea would be for independent car groups to pick their own objectives for Saturday and Sunday and then meet up Saturday night.
Skills required: You must be at a level where you can contribute to avalanche decision making and terrain selection. Practically, this means you have your AST1 (or equivalent) and previous experience touring. As well, a moderate level of fitness and skiing ability would be good. No, you don't need to be a god on skis, but you can't be falling down every turn.
Pretrip: Organization via email. I'll get the email faff going by the Wednesday, so please sign up before then.
Objectives: To be decided according to conditions and skill level. Personally, I'd be interested in Mt. Cayoosh, Mt. Rohr, Chief Pascale, or Joffre Lakes.
