BCMC Social Event
September 13th BCMC Social:  Into the White - by Lena Rowat

Lena is the only person to have skied the entire distance from tidal water near Vancouver, along the spine of the Coast Range & then The Saint Elias Mountains, to then climb Mt. Logan's East Ridge before skiing down the other side.  Most of this was done in 2 multi-month trips in 2001 & 2002, & all of it was done in high style. 
In the upcoming presentation she will be showing a compilation of photos & video to give a small taste of what was involved in her self-propelled journey to & over Canada's highest mountain.
Lena now works in Vancouver as a midwife, while filling her off call time with as much mountain adventure as possible; This spring she enjoyed joining a group for 2 weeks as they started off on their complete Selkirks Traverse.
The Watersprite Lake Cabin Project needs more volunteers!
