Trip Planning Questions

It would really be best if you have all your ICE gear, probably best to even have Shovel Beacon Probe as well. You may be able to borrow from BCMC and or rent what you need at MEC. We can do beacon search practice if needed.

Participant Information

1. Meet up at the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge (Canmore) the evening of December 16th (or I'll P/U at Calgary airport as per below). Return to Vancouver Saturday December 22nd. I have an SUV and can drive up to three people back with me, but I'll be arriving via Fernie so I can't participate in a carpool from Vancouver to Canmore. I can help organise the Carpool for the rest of the group however.

NOTE: If you want to fly to Calgary I pick you up at the airport free of charge on the 16th at night, and can definitely can do a P/U in town any weeknight.

2. This trip is suitable for people capable of WI 3 and above on TR, WI 2 and above on lead. I can lead up to 3 solid and  have led 4 when in mid season form.

3.Itinerary can be fodder for nightly discussions, but maybe start TR’ing at Haffner Creek WI 3-4+, then debate any of the following: Grotto Falls WI3,4, Junk Yards2-4, Johnston Canyon3-4, Kananaskis Ctry.: King Creek 3,4, Evan Thomas Creek 3,4 maybe drive to Ghost 3,4, let’s face it, it’s all candy :)

4.BCMC RECOMMENDED TRANSPORTATION COST: 12c / km/pers. if 2 or 3 pers. in car, 8c/ km/pers. if 4 pers. in car.

5.COMMUNICATION: Via email is best at first until I have a sense of numbers, etc.: My email is beaumier.craig@gmail.ca, If you need to talk my number is: 778-834-4164.
