So I was pretty stoked to go skiing this weekend, but then on the other hand I was also pretty stoked to go climbing. Then I remembered that we live in Vancouver and can do both! 

This will be a series of day trips (2), each more elaborate than the last. 

1) Squamish on Saturday, doing some cragging at the Smoke bluffs, Chek canyon or somewhere else. 
2) Seymour or Red Heather on Sunday, depending on the avi conditions and how much snow is at either location. 

It's not required that you are an amazing climber or skier, but it would be good if you've done these activities before. This won't be instructional and you should be able to take care of yourself, but having said that - both days should be pretty low output and mellow. 

If we end up with a driver who is keen for an overnight it might make more sense to camp somewhere in Squamish on the Saturday night, and go to Red Heather on Sunday.
