A very nice and mellow area that gives us fast
alpine access with only minor bushwhacking.
As the first trip of the season and with a very
low snowpack so far, will be very cautious
where we ski: the are has some nice glades in
the 1700-1800m elevation band where some nice
snow should be found.
The plan is to drive on the FSR all the way to
1300m trailhead, using snow chains for the
tires, but we might have to park a bit lower.
I expect 30 min or so of boot-packing, so bring
some microspikes or crampons, in case the trail
is icy down below.
4x4 and snowchains are mandatory
This is a trip for intermediate and
advanced BC skiers only. Sorry, but no
