Description:

Let’s get out and enjoy all the pow without getting avalanched! Plan is to head up to Paul ridge/Elfin lakes and ski some fun, mellow slopes. 

 

I’m fairly new to backcountry skiing so this is definitely NOT an instructional/beginner friendly trip. You should have done AST1 or higher and be able to make decisions for yourself regarding avalanche/mountain safety. Having said that, this should be a fairly chill day as the terrain in this area is not too crazy.

 

This trip will only go ahead if the avalanche forecast does not get too serious. They are forecasting the next storm Friday/Saturday so this trip will depend on what happens.

 

Essential kit:

  • Avalanche beacon/shovel/probe + knowledge of how to use everything!
  • Backcountry ski/board set up
  • Snacks, snacks, snacks
  • Psyche!

Drivers - you must have winter tires to drive the sea to sky highway right now. Please dont offer to drive if you do not have winter tires. You also need chains to access the upper parking lot, if no chains then we can park at the lower lot which adds 1 to 2 km.

Don't hesitate to email me ([email protected]) if you have any questions!
