The route and terrain described here is capable
avalanches. Safe travel requires the skills and
assess and mitigate avalanche hazards. A
taught training course is highly recommended.
The Brian Waddington Hut is on the eastern
(interior) side of the Coast
Range, and consequently snow quality is usually
very good. The hut is a
great base for yo-yoing and touring, surrounded
by good slopes on all
aspects. There is excellent tree skiing nearby
as well, so bad weather won't
mean you have to sit around in the hut all day.
You should be comfortable
with blue runs and powder snow to get the most
enjoyment out of the terrain
in the area.|
