Feature Presentation by Mike Thompson and Marcus Dell- “Skiing the Sierra High Route”:   “Skiing the Sierra High Route”:  Mike and Marcus are two of the four individuals who made the long drive to California to ski the Sierra High Route from Onion Valley (Independence) to Mammoth. They will show us the spectacular route that took them over 17 passes in a span of 210 kilometers and nearly 10,700 meters elevation gain.

*UPDATED* Presentation by Rob Brusse- “Upcoming Hiking and Climbing Camp”: A few seasons ago, Rob Brusse, along with a prominent Vancouver Section member (and quarter-master) Rob Szpak, organized a spectacular hiking-and-climbing camp in Grand Teton National Park just outside of Jackson Hole Wyoming. As they plan a re-run of the camp in 2024, this presentation will give you a sneak-peak into what it has to offer!
