Description

This is a great way to explore Blackcomb backcountry on a single day starting from the lifts.

The skiing is easy in general except for Cham chutes which will require steep skiing skills (still a relatively easy couloir).

Beware of the crevasses when crossing from Guide's notch to the entrance of Cham chutes, choose to skin either above or below the bergshrund.

Once down at Decker lake, slowly make your way up to Decker shoulder, Descent to the left of your skin tracks towards circle lake, then skin across and climb below Blackcomb peak to finally exit via Bodybag bowl back to 7th Heaven.
