(Directions taken from the excellent John Baldwin 'Exploring the Coast Mountains on skis'.) We will ski from the highway parking spot up the Falls Lake Rd for 1km, and then take a pipeline maintenance road that leads NE, then along a pipeline right of way up onto Zoa's shoulder at 1500m Then we head W along the Zoa ridge. We will return via the same route. Trip is open to relative newcomers to back country touring. Ideally you should have decent downhill skiing skills, i.e be at least comfortable on blue ski runs.
