Participant Information
Ski season is approaching and all of you planning on doing the Howe Sound Crest ski traverse this year should get out an help maintain this trail. This is a BCMC-adopted trail and it hasn't seen a work party this year.

A recent report on Bivouac said the trail was cleared. Not quite so! There is still a switchback that is obliterated by blowdown and there is a one-meter diameter log that is cut through but wedged in place. It needs a 2-ton or 5-ton come-along if someone has got one (E-man, are you out there?). If we get done early there's a ski bridge needed on the Harvey Creek road and some brush clearing up that way. Apparently, there's blowdown obscuring a junction low down on the Brunswick trail. No shortage of work but needs lots of volunteers.
