Agreed Dano. Those are all places on my list this year too, home basing out of Edmonton as well.
Depending on your timing, keep in touch, as atleast 2 times this winter we will have a massive Astro van heading out of Edmonton into Van, and beyond.
PS. As Astro's van go, this one is wicked, purchased just for snowboarding trips, and is currently getting a lot of TV's installed in it.
Was just talking to a guy yesterday, raving about Baker, so I really can't wait to check that out. Otherwise, Marmot basin every week for me!
