Tuesday May 8th BCMC Social Event


The Five Treasures of High Snow

by John Gill


Doors @7:00 PM ANZA Club

Social Event @7:30 PM


Everest and K2 hold the spotlight for high altitude mountaineering in the Himalaya, but their slightly smaller sibling, Kanchenjunga, is definitely not to be ignored! Last Fall, I was lucky enough to spend a month exploring this remote corner of Nepal, and came away with a few stories to share. This mountain has captivated my imagination and is now the focus of my next big expedition.


The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, May 8th. The entrance door will open at 7 pm and we will begin the evening at 7:30 PM with an Update from the Executive.  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 117 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.

From Backcountry BC on Pinecone Burke: - by Chris Ludwig (posted also on Backcountry BC) "The planning process for Pinecone Burke Provincial Park is currently underway.  This planning process is to create the park's first Masterplan that will determine what is allowed and what is not allowed in the park for decades to come.  This is accomplished through zoning. ...
