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 backcountry winter camping.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
