Lest old acquaintance be forgot - come join us for Whiskey in Squamish to celebrate days gone by for Robbie Burn's birthday.

This trip is beginner friendly. We'll head to Red Heather on Thursday Evening, continue on to Elfin Shelter, and return to Squamish early Friday Morning.

You will need a pair of skis / a board / snowshoes / microspikes / branches & duct tape, or anything else that aids your movement on snow.

Whiskey & sleeping gear is required if staying overnight, but you could just as easy head out Thursday night.

Note: This is not a course. While Brittany does have a certificate and is able to serve alcohol professionally, joining the trip means you understand the risk of drinking alcohol yourself. It's helpful if you understand the finer details of Scotch, but we can help guide you in a non- professional capacity. Guidance will not follow a workshop format, and you are expected to be able to drink whiskey without help. Any advice given solely reflects our own mantra and not that of the club. Many online courses about the risk of drinking alchol are available and we absolutely suggest you seek out somebody that drinks professionally so that you can learn the agreed upon way to drink whiskey. We don't purport to keeping up with industry changes or political correctness memorandums and may accidently pack rice wine or say something very taboo. If you are unsure that your experience is enough, you may send us a resume of your drinking experience and we can make some suggestions on how appropriate this trip might be. Raz is an active member of the Avalanche Association and believes this to be a beginner friendly trip regardless of the avalanche risk. He also makes no promises that we will be safe. We don't believe anyone can guarantee safety, not even by staying home. In- fact, the trip would be very boring if it were actually safe. Furthermore, most accidents happen close to home, so you are less likely to get hurt buy coming with us.
