This is a SNOW JAM event and preference will be given to those who are staying at the Coquihalla Lakes Lodge for the weekend.
This will be an easy trip with a focus on learning. We will ski tour towards the Zoa summit area and seek out gentle terrain along the ridge to practice some turns. On the skin up there will be time to ask questions about backcountry travel and to hone your beacon skills by performing a search with a partner. After our group lunch we can dig a snow pit together and discuss what we find. We'll take it slow and easy through the trees and down the pipeline right-of-way on our ski out and plan to be back at the trailhead by 4:00 pm.
I will arrive at the Lodge Friday evening. Meet me at the Falls Lake parking area at 8:30 am. Let me know if you will be departing Saturday morning from Vancouver and if you can offer a lift to others or if you need a lift.

Beacon, probe, shovel, lunch and water
