Yeah I would like to have a beacon and all the kit but I just cant afford it.
If it looked vaguely dangerous I wouldn't consider it but the area seems quite tame from what I'v seen on youtube (I could be wrong) hence why I'm asking on here as I don't know anyone that could take me up there.
If anyone skis there on a monday/tuesday and wouldnt mind showing me a few little spots in return that would be cool, would chuck you some beer or something if you wanted.
It is always a good thing to have the right equipment when using the backcountry but in my experience it's not needed at Sun Peaks unless you are hiking far out into the valley towards elevators where it starts to get a little bit steeper. The descents are not very long compared to other places but its a very quick turn around that involves minimal hiking.
