    FWIW - skinned across Lake Louise today, collapses on every step and could get cracks to propagate... on a flat lake. Touchy indeed.

    Its more apt to happen on the flats. Still a good indication

    Hey all, mtnlion mentioned that I should post in here in case someone's interested.

    Unfortunately, my wife injured her knee a few days ago, right before our planned hut trip. So we are selling two spots to Sol Lodge in the Monashees (guided, catered), heli out of Cherryvile, BC, for next week, Jan 19-24. We're asking $4k USD (around $5300 CAD) for both spots, which is a bit of a discount over what we paid.

    More details here: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...95#post6775195

    Totaly longshot, I know but PM if interested.

    Hear ya brother. My bro and several of his university friends are coming to Pano on Feb 3-6, then they are off to Red for the balance of the week. Very firm conditions, hoping this turn in the jet stream brings some fresh snow love.

    Likely most folks who would be interested in this already know because they belong to the ACC. Thought I would pass along anyways. I assume it’s guided. Doesn’t say, but I thought all Fairy Meadow trips are. The avalanche conditions are shit and I don’t know the terrain so there’s that and maybe why it’s available.

    An unexpected opening at the Fairy Meadow Hut for next week could be a great opportunity for those who can book off for amazing adventure on short notice. Here are the details:

    Date: January 28 to Feb 3 (Saturday to Saturday).
    Cost: $650 per person (members) or $720 per person (non-members) including helicopter flights (regular $1,300).
    Bookings: Per bed. FM ski weeks are booked annually by lottery, for all 20 spots. This week will be booked by the bed, meaning you can book for small groups and pay only for the beds you need.
    Status: There are presently 7 spots booked, 13 available.
    Payment: Full payment is required at the time of booking.
    Action: Call our reservations staff at 403-678-3200, ext. 0.

    Not guided- good price, well worth it for anyone that can go. Good tree laps below hut that are manageable. Good refresh coming in on 27, sauna alone is worth it! No matter what it will be memorable!

    Nice reset at Kimberley today. 41 cm new. Storm was loitering directly over us and Cranbrook.

    Lots of skiers here from Fernie today. Usually the reverse.

    Worth the trip, trees are legit and you can yo yo and huck cliffs if you need. I've gone unguided on two occasions, it's a place where having viz at some point helps because all the prized peaks offer unreal surrounding views and it'll help putting in the uptracks towards collosal, enterprise, sir Willy, Scotty coolie, etc...

    Still remember skiing off Sir William and seeing Cmh adamants (I think) drop of clients to wiggle turn on a ramp 500m below us ....that was satisfactory.

    That's a good price.

    Hi - Looking for some advice. First time poster. If this should be in another section, please let me know.

    We are going to Kicking Horse in early/mid-March. Have booked to do 5 days, but now my wife and daughter are going early to do a 2-day 'Rippin Betties' clinic before our 5 days...so, my son and I are trying to decide if we should do:
    - 7 days at KH or
    - 2 days at Lake Louise before KH or
    - 2 days at Revelstoke before KH

    Our 2-day plan would be to leave early morning from Golden and ski LL/Revy, stay overnight in LL/Revy, ski the next day and drive back to Golden.

    My questions are:
    - would it be better to just stay at KH? We've skied KH, Fernie, and Pano previously. But not LL or Revy.
    - Would all this driving be too ambitious?

    Thank you in advance. Ryan

    That driving is not too ambitious unless there is a storm that messes with Roger's pass.

    I think your plan is pretty good... a good way to explore various places.

    Yep, ShortyJ nailed it. Not much driving to do some new hills, especially if you aren’t in the neighbourhood that often.

    Yes do the drive and Revie would be my pick esp if your two days are on weekend.

    Remember that Revie is in a different time zone than KH ( Golden) so you leave at 8am with a 2 hour drive you arrive at 9am. It hurts on the way back but that's after skiing. That morning early check drivebc if any closures in Rogers pass.

    If heart set on LL then remember that there is an over night closure in pass between LL and Golden from 10pm to 7am. Shouldn't affect plans but its info you should know.

    12:00 am - 7:00 am
    Overnight closure until 7 am
    7:00 am - 9:00 am
    Highway OPEN – no stoppages
    9:00 am - 3:00 pm
    Highway open with 30-minute stoppages
    3:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    Highway OPEN – no stoppages
    8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Highway open with 30-minute stoppages
    10:00 pm - 11:59 pm
    Overnight closure 10 pm – 7 am
