Description:

EDIT: Date change

The season is shaping up to be a pretty spicy one, and can you think of a better way of raising the heat than a foray to the Duffey. The area I have in mind is surrounded by some pretty delicious lines- couloirs, pillows, and fields of powder that will you feel all tingly. But none of these quite compare to ‘the spine wall’- a wall of chutes and (you guessed it) spines, that require nerves harder than mine to ride.


Because this trip will involve some potentially complex terrain and exploring the area, AST1 is necessary, and you should be able to ski a double black comfortably. It would probably be handy to have some experience skiing steep lines and be comfortable breaking trail through what will hopefully be bottomless pow.

 As much as I do ‘love’ winter camping, I’m aiming to stay in a hut up there, but we may have to bring tents if enough people come. The hut is very much so first-come-first-serve, so we should be leaving Friday early afternoon or late morning. not that you should skip class (but you might want to)*. Hopefully we can make it up before the Whistralians do, get our spots down ready for a skin up to see the sunrise from one of the peaks on Saturday morning if its sunny.

Further details will be discussed at the pre-trip meeting. We will iron out details and cars etc. so it will be mandatory.
