I've been wanting to go up to Rainbow Mtn (west of Whistler) for some time now, and, once there, it seems like a good idea to try for Puma as well (next peak west from Rainbow).

It's a nice area, especially if the weather opens up a little, so come and burn off all your exam stress/end of term project worries/general existentialist confusion.

More info about Rainbow can be found at:

The plan is to do it in two days, which should make it a reasonably not super strenuous trip.I'm hoping the organization can all be done by email, so it would be better if you've already been on a couple of trips and roughly know the drill.

P.S. Since there is some steep terrain involved, we may have to adjust plans If avalanche conditions do not cooperate. But that's just part of life.
