I am not too avvy savvy: I have done an avalanche course 4 years ago, but looking to brush up on it. Also, I dont have a beeper (yet). I know you can never be 100% safe, but would rather avoid going into terrain with even moderate risk until I am better prepared.
as for the manning lodge....isnt that one really expensive?
would be a great base, but we did a lot of daytrips from a base over xmas -see trip report about xc skiing in Kootenays- and are now looking for a little time in the backcountry.
I think we will stick with North Shore for this weekend though:
just checked canadian avalanche centre website,
avalanche risk for north Shore as of friday 1pm predicted for today/ sat is 1-low,
Duffey Lake area/Sea to Sky is treeline-considerable(3) and alpine-high(4)...(website will be updated later today)
