Coming from march 17-24
Which airport should we fly into and rent a car ? We heard kalmoops (spelling ) because it's less likely to be closed driving to revelstoke for avalanche control . Unlike driving from the Calgary airport .
We were just going to get a hotel from hotels.com (2 or maybe 3 people ) in that little town 10 min away . Any other ideas ? Good rental sites for houses
We need to buy backcountry gear (or do we ? ) we enjoy glades and powder and our only trip out west big sky and bridger bowl they blasted for avalanches so we didn't need anything .
I take it I need a probe , transmitter , and shovel ? Also can I get to most of the back country or deeper snow where I need that stuff from a gondola at the top. I hate wearing backpacks on lifts . I plan to buy them rather than renting them for 100$ because I'll have them for other trips .
Is there another mountain to hit our first day on the way from kalmoops to revelstoke ? Just to try a different place in the area .
