Do you splitboard or ski?

Can you drive? If so, how many folks could you take with gear?

Participant Information

Plan is to attempt Thar summit and riding anything decent we find up top. Suggest bringing split board and/or boot crampons (I think I'll bring both) for any extra crunchy snow on the lower slopes. Please review the route description in the Baldwin book. I've never been up here before, so expect some route finding on the way up and down unless we're fortunate to have someone join us who has been up before.

Trip will be postponed or cancelled if snow conditions and/or weather are terrible. Final go / no go decision will be made by Thursday before. I'll post confirmation to the trip planning forum later this week. Please also use the trip planning forum to arrange carpool details to the meeting place in Langley.

Preference will be given to split boarders to sign up first up until one week before the trip, at which point skiers are more than welcome to join and possibly be slowed down by us!

Must have AST 1, beacon, shovel, probe and knowledge to use, plus all other day trip essentials.

Any questions, please feel free to email
