Participant Information

Ski up to Artist Point. After that it will depend on the skill/energy level of participants, and the conditions.

Experience: Minimal skiing experience required. If everyone is more advanced, we will ski some harder stuff though.

Weather: Due to the terrain we're on, and the short distance we're travelling. I'm willing to go out in pretty much any weather, though if it's bad enough it might be a short day. If you want to bail though, I understand.

Please make sure any rental gear works beforehand. MEC has had some QA issues in the past.

This is a joint BCMC/ACC trip, so while the Maximum Participants is actually 12, I'm adjusting the value to reflect the signups from the other club.

Required Items to Bring:
Passport, skis, skins, poles, beacon, probe, shovel, gloves/mitts, rain jacket, warm jacket, lunch/lunch money
Recommended Items to Bring:
Goggles or glasses of some form, helmet
