The idea is to get in the surroundings of Callaghan Lodge around noon (Saturday) so that we can ski in the afternoon. This involves a 13K ski on groomed trails (Baldwin gives it a 3Hr, but I think it will take more). Skiing in the afternoon will depend on the weather and avalanche conditions. I am thinking about Journeyman Peak. For Sunday, options are opened (Solitude Glacier, Hidden Pk, Mt Callaghan). The plan is to ski all day and return late in the day. Return will be on the groomed trails, therefore will be very easy.

Required Items to Bring:
Ski gear, avy gear (beacon, probe, shovel), iceaxe, harness, crevasse rescue gear, camping gear
Recommended Items to Bring:

** Vancouver Transit Info
Carpool Cost: Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $62.50 (calculated at total Km * $0.25, effective Thursday, March 21, 2019). This is based on the current provincial government rate for private vehicle use.  Please pay your share of the cost to the carpool driver.

There is a 20$ fee/person/day for using the groomed trails. Plus there is a 20$/vehicle/night fee. I will take care of it and you will give me the money back.
