Ski up to Artist Point. After that it will depend on the skill/energy level of participants, and the conditions.

Experience: Minimal skiing experience required. When signing up please check "Beginner" if you can only ski green runs, "Intermediate" if you are comfortable on blue runs and "Advanced" if you are comfortable on black runs or harder. This will help me organize the plan.

Weather: Due to the terrain we're on, and the short distance we're traveling. I'm willing to go out in pretty much any weather, though if it's bad enough it might be a short day. If you want to bail though, I understand.

Please make sure any rental gear works beforehand. MEC has had some QA issues in the past.

This is a joint BCMC/ACC trip, so while the Maximum Participants is actually 12, I'm adjusting the value to reflect the signups from the other club.

Passport, skis, skins, poles, beacon, probe, shovel, gloves/mitts, rain jacket, warm jacket, lunch/lunch money
