Think wed have any luck getting up to the ridge, or is it too avy-prone right now?
Are you looking to be in a particular area? How far of a trail are you looking for? Eaton Lake could be a good spot, though it, and probably many other areas around the lower mainland, will likely be very busy this weekend.

Wilderness is not a luxury but necessity of the human spirit.
