Note - date change - 4/15 - 4/18 (leaving Seattle night of 4/14). This is a committing ski traverse suitable for participants with prior experience on multi-day trips and competent backcountry ski ability. As a glacier trip it is essential you have current crevasse rescue skills, either through the climbing or glacier ski programs. Our goal is to try and get near Hibachi ridge by the end of day 2, and spend most day 3 getting some descents in, potentially including Mt Currie. Day #1 we'll gain altitude by riding the lifts to the top of the Blackcomb glacier. Will require buying a backcountry day ticket for the Whistler/Blackcomb resort. We'll leave Seattle Wednesday night and return late Sunday evening. Please email steven.f.brain@gmail.com for more information and to sign-up.
