Participant Information

UPDATE: I have changed the meeting time to one hour earlier...  6 AM.   We will appreciate the extra hour of daylight when we're descending down the ridge and returning across the meadows.

The trail from the parking lot to Panorama Ridge and back is 30km with a 1525m elevation gain.  It will require excellent fitness and good snowshoe skills.  With the short December days we'll definitely be descending after sunset with headlamps.  Everyone will need to carry the 10 essentials including an emergency bivy and warm clothing in case we're forced to stop for an extended period of time.

Garibaldi Lake from Panorama Ridge

The above sunrise photo was taken by "ubishops", a fast hiker/snowshoer (I've hiked with him a few times), and posted on the Club Tread forum in early October.  Here's a link to the associated trip report: http://www.clubtread.com/sforum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=58233
