This day-trip is intended for intermediate to advanced tourers. I will consider a few beginners as long as we have toured together before. Everyone must have completed AST-1 or have equivalent experience. The location will depend on conditions and be chosen closer to the date. Areas that are high on my list include Metaldome, Sporatt and Thar (hopefully there is enough snow). If needed we will go to the Whistler BC ($60 pass). We will aim to be back at the cars by dark. More details to follow closer to the date. Note: I am on vacation from Dec 12th to 18th with no email access and likely will not be able to update the registration until I return.

Required Items to Bring:
Skis or splitboard, skins, avalanche beacon, probe, shovel, headlamp, food, water, extra clothes
