Early Season Backcountry Turns - Elfin Lakes Area

Backcountry Skiing on Paul Ridge which is a classic early season opener for most people. Shake off those cobwebs, remember how to turn those skis and get some exercise skinning up a mellow old road.
The plan is to leave St Davids Church at 7am and then drive up to Squamish for some turns. I'm expecting a full day of skiing here with alot of yo-yoing along Paul Ridge so please remember to bring a headlamp in case we return after 4pm.

Members are expected to have completed their AST1 course, carry and know how to use their avalanche safety equipment Paul Ridge is not considered to be complex avalanche terrain but this is a standard for all ACC Ski trips.
For drivers, I highly recommend the use of winter tires, 2wd vehicles should carry chains as Mamquam Rd can sometimes get icy in the winter.
Any questions please email me.
