This is a tentative trip because I'm not sure how many will sign up and if the weather is bad it's definitely a no-go.

Location is Semaphore Lakes, Mt Face, Locomotive Mountain, Train Glacier The dates are wednesday to friday but it can be a day, overnight trip or multi night trip.

After seeing some pictures from the recent trip to the area, I've received my confirmation that conditions are looking ripe for skiing. It would be fairly beginner friendly but without any glacier travel/crevasse rescue experience experience you will have to stick to the permanent snowpack (which is abundant this year. Because the glacier is generally not too crevassed, I'd be happy to ski the glacier with beginners if there was another member with crevasse rescue experience to cover my back.
