Participant Information

Meet at 6:30 am at the Boundary Rd. Chevron. We will also be stopping at the Lickman Rd. Tim Hortons in Chilliwack at 7:45 to regroup. The usual avy gear is required. The AST 1 course is not essential for this trip but I am asking the following:

1) Familiarize yourself with the transceiver you will be carrying. And get some practice.

2) Check out a map and/or a description of the area

3) Check current avalanche conditions the night before or the morning of.

4) Do a bit of research into the dangers of tree wells. Lots on Youtube.
