No suffer fests, no big mountaineering objectives, just an enjoyable day skiing whistler slackcountry!

Personally, as a seasoned north shore mountains skier new to the backcountry, the main goal for the day is to get as many pow laps in as possible while taking it pretty easy on the uphills. 

current plan is to is a none glaciated route on blackcomb, vista bowl or just lap disease ridge if avy conditions are bad.

So, who is this trip for? if you are an experienced backcountry skier this can be an opportunity to get out there and enjoy a chill day of stress-free skiing. If you are an advanced resort skier new to the backcountry, this can be a great way to get more familiar with skiing actual pow while improving fitness. 

AST-1 is required, and being comfortable ripping a black run is definitely a good idea.

Trip is tentative depending on people's experience level in the area and ski touring in general. I have only toured in the area once so would love to have more people with at least similar experience on the trip; if you have any tips for me please feel free to reach out!
