Participant Information

With all of the snow falling this week, we are looking to do some skiing in the Coquihalla area.  The location will be determined based on AVI conditions; however, we are looking to potentially scope out some of the areas discussed for possible future hut locations.  Note, because the location is still to be determined, it is expected participants are physically fit for a full day of touring, and also have intermediate to advanced downhill ski abilities (comfortably ski Black Diamonds).  Plan to meet at the Chevron on Boundary just south of 12 ave for 5:45AM.

ALL participants MUST have the following equipment:

Beacon, Probe & Shovel

AST-1 or higher training

AT/telemark ski or splitboard setup (including skins)


Appropriate clothing for being out in the elements all day

Enough food and water to remain on the move for most of the day

(trip organizer will carry the following items: first aid kit, Compass/Map)

This will involve a long day, with the potential for some objective dangers. 

Please consider NOT seeking to join this trip unless you have conducted your own research into the route, and compared that with your own experience, fitness level and skill.

Please update your BCMC Account Profile with your emergency contact information. To do that you have to login on the website, click the "My account" button at top right, then click on "edit profile information", then select the "private information" tab and enter your emergency contact information -- this info will stay in your profile and is made available to a trip organizer automatically -- it saves time at the meeting point.

N.B. If you have previously "bailed" less than a day before the start of, or been a "no show" for, one of the trip organizer's previous trips, you need not apply to join this one - you will not get a response.
