UPDATE:

I (Sam V) just got a job, and can't come this weekend.  Really sorry to bail on my own trip.  I think the trip could go without me, you don't need much experience.  Here's the description:  (Brandon will organize you, so be nice to him)

Phelix Hut is one of my favorite places in the Sea to Sky region.  There's two beautiful alpine lakes, glaciers, great scrambling, and great ridge running.  The hut sleeps over 30 people, so you don't need a tent.  You don't need any technical skills, but you do need to be able to hike 10 kilometers uphill.  There might be snow up high, so you'll want boots that can handle that.  An ice-ax an helmet could be useful for accessing everything in the area, but there's a lot of great stuff that you wouldn't need this for.

UPDATE:

We have one full vehicle of 5 people going up Saturday in the morning and returning Monday afternoon.  Roland and one other have already headed up Thursday night to do some road work and tree clearing.
