Participant Information

Mt. Kelly is one of south west BC's easiest ski tours, but still can have some good turns and great views of the Three Brothers Area and Mt. Hozomeen area.  The ascent takes approximately 2.5 hours at a relaxed pace.

This trip is suitable for anyone, from those of you going backcountry skiing for one of your first times to those of you with plenty of experience just wanting an easy day.  There is a bit of tree skiing on the way down, but nothing very steep.

Trip destination may be changed if no new snow falls before the trip date.

All participants must have a beacon, shovel, and probe with them.

Our meeting point will be the park and ride lot at the corner of Lonzo Rd and Sumas Way (map) in Abbotsford at 8am.  If you are unable to make it there by yourself, please use the trip forum to contact the other trip participants to arrange a carpool from the city.
