Itinerary:


Please note that 2 strong snowshoers will join us and even myself might use snowshoes as my knee is still in recovery mode and I am not sure if I can ski safely.

We need to maintain a steady pace through out the whole trip as we should be back at the cars at 4pm or so.
The plan is to use the normal winter route to the Watersprite cabin and then though a col to gain the Crawford W2 ridge. This is a trip for intermediate and advanced BC skiers only. We won't do any crazy chutes but you should be able to ski black runs under any type of conditions and maintain a steady pace the whole trip.
