Day Trip Ski Touring to Whistler Backcountry

Day trip for Whistler Backcountry. It looks good but the Avalanche conditions for the region remain "considerable" Which for this group means that we will be skiing conservative stuff. Low angle terrain and tree skiing. I'm going to set our destination as the Flute / Oboe area of the Whistler Backcountry and we will evaluate the possibility of skiing Cowboy Ridge depending on how stable the snow pack is and our time.

The weather forecast looks like we will have some fairly mixed conditions at all elevations so please ensure you dress in layers that can be shed easily

Please Be aware there is a cost you must pay to Whistler of $60 for your upload pass

Passport or EDL, Avalanche Safety Gear, Ski's or Splitboard
