Well where are you going?

Have you been in the BC before?

Does every single one of you have all the proper gear? Pack? Beacon? Probe? Shovel?

Do you guys know how to test the snowpack?

Are you gonna hike or split?

Going with a guide or just 'going?'


EDIT: I see you live in Michigan, is this where you are riding?

Well the fact that you're riding in Michigan means you can disregard my last five questions.

Are you serious?

So since you have been riding for 25 years you don't need to worry about snowpack eh? Avalanches are not a joke.....

Your grammar is so bad this can't be serious. Holy Cow!

Go to ColoRADo you probably would fit in there.

This almost seems like a joke post,

if your serious and have the money go anywhere out west that does guided snowcat tours and go that route safe and all you have todo is show up with proper outerwear.

Good luck
