Battleship Lakes is a chain of lakes in the mountains south of Duffey Lake road and west of the Stein valley. It is a 10k hike in and sits between Meadow Dome and Meditation Mountain, as well as offering easy direct ascent of Priory peaks and Bellavista ridge, and several other unnamed summits.

The plan is to drive out on Fri and ski in, camp for two nights and explore the many summits and ski lines in this less-visited but still quite accessible area. The access is mainly on logging roads, with a section of steep climb and descent of old growth forrest and possibly some alder on the overgrown roads but this should be mostly under snow. This is not a beginner trip as requires good fitness, experience with snow camping, and a sense of adventure and exploration.

Required Items to Bring:
  • Skis/Splitboard and skins
  • Beacon, shovel, probe
  • Camping gear and meals
  • Sense of adventure!
