Tentative Ski Touring trip to the Blackcomb Glacier or Brandywine Peak or Black Tusk. I don't even know what to do with all this snow.

There will be a lot of hiking involved up Blackcomb Glacier Rd so be prepared to carry your skis on your back for up to 5km before we can start skinning up.

This is tentative on how I feel and how the weather is, I will make the final call on Saturday afternoon. Will open the group to another two people if there is demand.
I am also open to skiing other good early season destinations if you have some good beta on that place.
