Access via logging roads.

Sleeping in the Lizzie Creek Cabin, sleeps 6-8 - no reservations, no fee for use.

Possible ascents of Anemone Pk, Long Pk, Tynemouth Mnt etc.

ALL participants MUST have the following equipment.

  1. Beacon, Probe & Shovel
  2. AST-1 or higher training
  3. AT/telemark ski or splitboard setup (including skins)
  4. Headlamp + spare batteries
  5. Stove+gas to prepare your meals (or share with other participants)
  6. Appropriate clothing for being out in the elements all day
  7. Enough food and water to remain on the move for most of the day 

Trip organizer will carry the following items: first aid kit, GPS/Compass/Map.


Driving from Hwy 99 on Forest Service Rd 17 km in winter conditions can easily take an hour. Chains for car are advised.

Strenuous approach (C3) is time and energy consuming: elevation gain 1360 m in 13-15 kilometers of trail breaking with the potential for some objective dangers.  We should try to start approach not later than at 7am to get to cabin before dark.

Trip will only "go" with a decent weather forecast (POP of 50% or less), and a forecast of "Moderate" or less on the CAA Avalanche Danger Scale for "Below treeline", on the day before the start date: see http://www.avalanche.ca/cac/bulletins/latest/south-coast. If the trip does not "go", it may be rescheduled to a later date (if possible).

Please consider NOT seeking to join this trip unless you have conducted your own research into the route, and compared that with your own experience, fitness level and skills.

If you want to receive a response from the Trip Organizer, you must answer the questions for participants (see left-hand side of Trip Page).
