BCMC Social Event

Tuesday April 9th BCMC Social Event


Haute Route: a hut-to-hut tour from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland
by Silvia Bakovic, Rob Janousek, Wilson Edgar & Frauke Seewald


Doors @7:00 PM at the ANZA Club

Social Event @7:30 PM


In April 2018 a group of 4 BCMC members set out to do the Haute Route: a hut-to-hut tour from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland.


A truly unique experience that taught us to respect the Alps and that mountains aren’t mountains as the Alps are different from the Coast Mountains or the Rockies.

We want to share with you our story, our photos, and our learnings.


The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, April 9th. 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.

The weather forecast was originally for rain, so we expected to be making more use of the hut, but by the time the long weekend arrived, it was sunny and warm with just a little snow on the ground.
