That's not what boarding's all about.
Please don't bring somebody on the platter who isn't high intermediate at the least.
I never had a day where divide visibility wasn't bad at some point in the day. My first go around with boarding was 2002 at Sunshine. Went on the divide for the first time and whiteout conditions came in for the entire afternoon. A buddy and I were lost for 3 hours in bounds... true story.....
