Beginner-Friendly Ski Tour

January 6th 2018


Description:

**Please read the entire description before signing up**

Due to other trips I am organizing I will likely not move
anyone off the waitlist until after Christmas.

Preference will be given to those without much touring
experience who have completed AST1. However, anyone is
welcome to put their name on the list.
If there is enough interest I may expand or split the group.

I will not chase people for information. If you have
limited history with the club or we have never skied
together, it is YOUR responsibility to
contact me. Simply stating ‘beginner’ or ‘intermediate’ is not
adequate.

Please indicate your touring experience, skiing ability,
avi training, general fitness, and if you have a winter-ready
vehicle and can drive.

If you can not longer attend, remove yourself from the
waitlist asap. I am keeping track of members who repeatedly
sign-up for trips and do not remove
themselves if they cannot go. These people should not
expect to be included on future trips.

Likely destinations include Zoa Peak (Coquihalla), Pauls
Ridge (Squamish, if weather is poor), Musical Bumps
(Whistler, $60 pass) or the Mt Baker
resort BC (passport, EDL needed; last choice). Other
destinations will also be considered.

All participants are expected to be able to ski blue runs,
off piste, under any conditions (the backcountry is not a
place to learn downhill skiing).
If Mt Baker has the best conditions then I require that
everyone be able to ski black runs under any conditions.

I will confirm the trip, destination and car pool meeting
location and time during the week before the trip. If you are
renting gear from MEC this
will give you time to cancel if needed.

This trip will be canceled or re-scheduled at the leaders
discretion if the avi risk is too high or conditions are not
suitable for beginners.
