Thanks for the tip on the map. I can see the areas you are talking about, looks great. If a person had 2 cars, they could park one at on the road and the other by the lodge. That way if you venture into the BC behind summit, it looks like you can ski down to the car on the road and not have to hike back. I've eyeballed the terrain on the road up, and there looks like a huge amount of very inviting BC.
I hear ya about the avy dangers. WW gets a ton of snow. Even last year which was a lean year the snowpack was right up there. That's why I was wondering if there were guides or guided tours available.
Have you skied the BC terrain off Summit chair? How is it? We've skied right up to the boundary down Dynamite and Dynamite Roll peering over the orange fence at the wide expanse of untracked.
Catchbasin is pretty sweet too though its a bit of a hike to get there. We were getting fresh tracks there days after the last snowfall.[ October 23, 2003, 08:17 PM: Message edited by: wizard ]
