Cheers guys - appreciate the info. Because I'm new to the area, and the few guys I know here ski, I've been going off doing some exploring on my own but I'm a bit hesitant to do much solo off piste exploring without a transceiver etc.
I've read that the platter at LL is a bit of a pain - is it really worth it once you get up top??
No need for a transceiver in bounds. Not saying in bounds avalanches are impossible but they're very rare. I venture all over the place here on my own...
The platter is a pain, but only you can judge if it's worth it. There's some very good boarding up there on both the front and back side of the platter. Because it's a pain it will be less tracked out. Just be prepared to rest for a minute at the top.
