Backcountry Skiing / Alpine Touring Sunday

The location we go will be determined based on the weather/conditions/skill level of participants. We will make the final call Saturday

Expect to be back in Vancouver by 5PM at the latest.

This trip is open to beginners

I plan to do at least one Avalanche Companion Rescue simulation during the day. If the snow conditions are not great for yo-yo ing and we are running early, we will do a couple more practices.

If I have not skied with you recently, please indicate your skill level and provide examples so I know your proficiency at both endurance for skinning up and downhill specifically in treed areas.

Please indicate if you have a full avi kit and your training. If you do not have a kit there are some that you can borrow from the ACC for free.

Avi Kit, lunch, 10 essentials.
