CANCELLATION POLICY WINTER SEASON 2011/2012.
The following information has been provided to assist folks in planning their trips to the Wendy Thompson Hut. Please read it carefully before making a booking for the hut.
Note that the route to the Wendy Thompson Hut, from trailhead on HWY 99N to the hut, is rated as ATES (Avalanche Terrain Exposure Scale) CHALLENGING. This means that winter travellers, using the most moderate terrain in the valley bottom and NORMAL CAUTION should be able to navigate to the hut and avoid most avalanche danger when danger is rated MODERATE or lower. When avalanche danger at any level is rated CONSIDERABLE, travellers must be able to exercise EXTRA CAUTION while navigating to the hut. The appropriate Avalanche Bulletin to check is the Canadian Avalanche Centre's South Coast (Duffey Lake) Bulletin. The appropriate bulletin is found here during the forecast season. For the approach to the hut, check the BTL,TL, and ALP rating. While all travel is below treeline, it is always important to know the ratings in the elevations above your travel route because of the CHALLENGING avalanche terrain exposure scale.
There can also be appropriate snowpack information on this thread at TelemarkTips.com.
Therefore, parties intending to travel to the hut should be prepared to routefind and exercise normal to extra caution in getting to the Wendy Thompson Hut. If the avalanche danger, rated by the CAC for Duffey Lake, rises to HIGH or EXTREME at any elevation, we will understand a party's wish to cancel a trip, but would appreciate notice as early as possible of the group's decision to cancel
- We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in ACC VA events.
