This is will be fun trip and a big day on the moutain so wax those skis and get a good nights sleep. I will decide on the touring area depending on the snow conditions and abilities of the group as well as what every one feels would be of interest. There are several locations I would like to revisit from last year but as always it all depends on the avi conditions and the type of group.

You must have a probe, shovel, digital beacon and head lamp to attend.

Leave from the Chevron on Dominion st and Boundry rd at 6am and drive out to the the Coquihalla highway. Driving time is aprox 2.5 hrs. Ski tour up to the top, yo-yo and head back around dusk. There most likely will be a bit of skiing in the dark back to the car so bring a headlamp and extra batteries. There is no set time to be back in Vancouver but we will be home by 10pm aprox.
