Red Heather isn't the most exciting thing around, but it's a great place for a casual day out, and you can still get some turns in there. This will be a great chance to get on skis for the first time if you haven't been able to yet.

We'll skin up to the Red Heather warming shelter, have a nice snack/lunch, and lap the open meadows above the hut. If people want to organize independent subgroups to explore a little farther, we could work that out.

This trip is beginner friendly, even in the normal people sense of the word.  Everyone should bring avalanche gear, but if you haven't used it before we can practice some beacon searches around the shelter.

I don't think a real pre-trip meeting is necessary for this trip, but if anyone wants to meet to discuss gear, etc. you can send me an email and we can meet up.

The location could be flexible if conditions are good and the group is interested in checking something else out.
