|It is last minute, but come join in for some holiday skiing
fun! Goal is to setup a base camp in the Blowdown Creek
area and explore the ridgelines and meadows. This will be
my first time in the area and I'm basing trip planning off
John Baldwin's descriptions (Exploring the Coast
Mountains on Skis pp 147).
Participants need prior avalanche training (AST-1
minimum) and be prepared for self-sufficient winter
camping in the backcountry. You must be comfortable
with skiing black diamond terrain.
If I haven't been on a club trip with you before, please
outline your relevant experience. Detailed logistics to be
discussed among participants upon registration. |
|Required Items to Bring:|
All participants must be self-sufficient for multi-day
