Introduction to Backcountry Skiing

January 25th 2014


Description:

Meet at St. David’s Church in West Van at 7 am
Drive to Paul Ridge in Garibaldi Park – the trail to Elfin Lakes
Practice using skins and getting used to climbing uphill
A bit of skiing in alpine, but I don’t think the snow will be that
great.
We will do a avi beacon practice, if you don’t have one I will bring 3
of the clubs to try out. Let me know if you need to borrow one.
You need try to get one from Behnam or MEC once my 3 are
assigned.
Hopefully have lunch in sun.
Ski down on icy road (sorry about the lack of fresh snow)
