Participant Information

A midweek day of moderate ski touring in the Spearhead Range.  The idea is to take the lifts up Blackcomb, then ski towards Mt Pattison depending on conditions and interests. 

Last week's conditions were challenging and sometimes icy.  This trip will depend on conditions/weather and may be changed or rescheduled. 

Participants must have:

1. All gear including: Beacon, Probe, shovel.

2. Prior backcountry skiing experience.

3. AST-1 or equivalent training.

Please bring a swimsuit in case we stop at the aquatic center hot-tub on the way home.
