We’re leaving tomorrow!

We’re ready! We’ve made the final touches, mailed out packages and moved belongings into storage. Tomorrow, we start our journey by boating up Pitt Lake. We plan to reach Whistler around February 25, where a few more members of the team will join us.

I just read an interesting article rating this winter as one of the most boring winters in history. Rounding out the top three was the year a group made this trip across the coast range.

Coming soon: A bio of who we are as a group, which we will work on. Basically, we are each taking a leave of absence from regular life and embarking on the trip of a lifetime.

    My husband and I met the team at Grant Narrows today. We were wondering why they were wearing ski boots so stopped to ask. Looking forward to reading about the journey. Good luck and safe travels!

  2. Michael, Erica, Ryan –

    Just saw something about this on the Teton Gravity Research Forums. Very cool expedition. Best of luck.

    Ping me if you would like free copies of our Mobile Avalanche Safety Tools for iPhone to make it easier to record and share your snow, weather and avalanche observations along the way.

    The plan today is to boat up Pitt Lake where they then hope to find a ride up a 30 km long road to snowline. Failing that, they will ave to walk the road, carrying their 80 lb. packs.
