Due to other trips I am organizing I will likely not move anyone off the waitlist until after Christmas.

Preference will be given to those without much touring experience who have completed AST1. However, anyone is welcome to put their name on the list. If there is enough interest I may expand or split the group.

I will not chase people for information. If you have limited history with the club or we have never skied together, it is YOUR responsibility to contact me. Simply stating 'beginner' or 'intermediate' is not adequate.

Please indicate your touring experience, skiing ability, avi training, general fitness, and if you have a winter-ready vehicle and can drive.

If you can not longer attend, remove yourself from the waitlist asap. I am keeping track of members who repeatedly sign-up for trips and do not remove themselves if they cannot go. These people should not expect to be included on future trips.

Likely destinations include Zoa Peak (Coquihalla), Pauls Ridge (Squamish, if weather is poor), Musical Bumps (Whistler, $60 pass) or the Mt Baker resort BC (passport, EDL needed; last choice). Other destinations will also be considered.

All participants are expected to be able to ski blue runs, off piste, under any conditions (the backcountry is not a place to learn downhill skiing). If Mt Baker has the best conditions then I require that everyone be able to ski black runs under any conditions.

I will confirm the trip, destination and car pool meeting location and time during the week before the trip. If you are renting gear from MEC this will give you time to cancel if needed.

This trip will be canceled or re-scheduled at the leaders discretion if the avi risk is too high or conditions are not suitable for beginners.

Required Items to Bring:
Skis or splitboard, skins, shovel, probe, digital beacon, headlamp, food, water, extra clothes.

Passport or Enhanced Driver's License (EDL) if we go to Baker.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Chocolate for the leader.

** Vancouver Transit Info

Baker is the last choice given the need to cross the border. If Baker is selected please ensure that you have the necessary documents to cross the border quickly. If you are likely to be delayed at the border then please do not sign up or drive ahead of the group.

Ensure that your evening is flexible as it is not possible to have a precise return time.
- We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in ACC VA events.

Cost Includes:$60 for a lift pass if we go to whistler.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our Etiquette Guidelines!
Note: If you don't show up we will be very hurt!
