March 24/25th, Channel Creek, Duffey Lake Road
« on: 03/27/12, 06:12 PM »

It took a while to get my March turns in. Lots of resort days plenty of work. We set out to take full advantage of the sunny conditions.



Armed with 50 pounds of gear each we set out to the Duffey Lake road ready for an adventure. We had tried to venture into Channel Creek on our first trip of the year Link here . So we were keen to see if we could add another area to our list. Passing each trail head and counting cars some areas (Cerise, Cayoosh,etc) had upwards of 40 people. Far too many for my liking.

This area has lots of potential but it may take a few more trips to hammer out a good route to the skiing. Lots of bushwacking and only about 300m of skiing is all that a 4 hour hike produced. Type 2 fun at its best.

The Duffey is becoming quite popular I have never seen so many cars!
