BCMC Social Event (Presentation@7:30pm)

The Evolution of Watersprite

by the BCMC Watersprite Building Committee

 

 In 2017 many hikers, skiers and mountaineers have ventured to visit the sprites and nymphs that inhabit and haunt Watersprite Lake in Garibaldi park thanks to its newly built destination. In this visual and engaging presentation our dedicated volunteers will take you on the journey taken, from the original vision, over many barrels of handmixed cement, arch beam placement, insulating, painting, and mystic lake encounters to its final and proud product.

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, January 9th. The entrance door will open at 7pm and the BCMC Social Presentation is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 135 people in the hall. Once at capacity we will be forced to turn attendees away. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.

Avalanche encounters

 Join the BCMC and Kurt Withers of Mountain Skills Academy and Adventures for an evening of avalanche awarness.

Tuesday November 14th 7:30pm ANZA Club

BCMC Social Event (Doors/Beer@7pm)

Annual General Meeting & Garibaldi Park Speed Traverse

- Mt. Currie to Red Heather on skis in 30h 18m

by Christian Veenstra

 

Join Christian Veenstra as he talks about his dozen-year journey from not even knowing you are supposed to turn when going downhill, to ski traversing Garibaldi Park from North to South, solo, in a single 104 km, 8700 m, 30.3 h 'day'. Since he didn't stop to take photos while linking the Wedge-Currie, Spearhead, McBride and Neve ski traverses instead he'll talk about motivation, training, equipment, route selection and hazard management. Don't worry - there will still be some visuals from training and reconnaissance trips, and geeking-out on GPS track data.
