This is a chance for people on the wait list to come ski with me for evaluation to see if it will work to do the Spearhead traverse together. If I already skied with you in the past and I can remember you, don't feel you have to come. We will meet at the Starbucks in Squamish 105- 40147 Glenalder Place to consolidate vehicles and people and do a quick review of the plan. Then we will convoy to P4 (off Lorimer road, the light after the Village Gate turn off, sign the waivers and walk together to Guest Services to pick up our lift pass. We will discuss our plan for the day and check equipment. We will head for the Blackcomb backcountry gate and spend the day on the slopes. I will be giving tips if necessary, and we will be enjoying moderate to expert descents. We will stay in simple to challenging terrain.

Required Items to Bring:
Good back pack, 30l or so, shovel, probe, transceiver, skis and skins, back pack lots of layers, a meal and snacks, at least one litre of water.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:I live in Squamish, but I will meet the group at the Starbucks near the Canadian Tire. Please organize a carpool amongst yourselves. EVERYONE NEEDS TO PROGRAM MY CELL PHONE IN THEIR PHONE 604-815-9009. I can't call people if they are missing while we are getting to the lifts. But I can answer to your call or text. Also have another person's contact in the group in case of failure of my phone.
