Participant Information

Participants must have AST-1 or higher avalanche training. Beacon, shovel, probe.

We will access the Hanging Lake trail via the overnight parking at Alexander Falls.

The conditions in the trees up to hanging lake will likely be pretty marginal. Be prepared to bootpack part of the route.

Thanks to Bill Maurer for the access notes: http://millsoft.ca/maurer/skitrips/wopaccess/

I'm interested to see whether the new policy on snowmobile access is being enforced: https://bcmc.ca/blogs/entry/BC-Government-Steps-In-on-the-21-Mile-Creek-Snowmobile-Issue

Conditions are going to be pretty shitty. We probably won't be getting any FB worthy pictures. Bring your rock skis.
