Backcountry Weekend (Guthiga River)

Trip type: 
Skiing
Difficulty: 
Medium
Start date: 
Saturday, 13 July 2019 - 6:00am to Sunday, 14 July 2019 - 7:00pm

Looks like there is plenty of snow heading to the mountains this week. Depending on conditions, the plan would be to park at Guthega and head up the Guthega River to set up camp Saturday morning. Then for the rest of Saturday and Sunday get in some skiing in the valley before heading back.  

Like I said this is dependent on weather, conditions and the experience of those signing up.  We may be able to change to something more adventurous.  But we can talk at the pre trip. 

This trip is for skiers (and split boarders) who are comfortable with heavy touring gear.  You will need to have used skins before and have camped in the snow before. Please outline your experience when signing up.
