Description

A BIG ski route I might try during a good long spring day...

It would be roughly 27 km and 1400 m of ascent/ 1700 m descent.

Would need very good stability to commit to this, particularly the descent from Harvey Pass to Bourgeau Trail.

There are also a few optional ski laps to be had along the way.

OR camp at one of the tree islands near Center Peak and break this up into a few days and ski North & East faces of Healy 1, 2, & 3.
