Has anyone here skiied them? Ive been looking around on the internet and there hasn't been much on them. I might be heading to Val D'Irene for a few days but they are closed during the week days so I was pondering making a day trip to the chic chocs. I don't have any backcountry gear (no probe,Avi shovel or beacon) just showshoes and skis. I consider myself a good skiier but I have a traveling companion who is a advanced intermediate level. Is there a way to make this work safely?
