Participant Information

Sorry for the last minute posting. Andrew, a non-BCMC friend and I will tour tomorrow (Thursday) in the Baker area.

Baker got a huge amount of snow last weekend with quite perfect temperatures. By now, things are looking very stable and with great weather in the forecast, conditions should be really good for a tour there.

I am thinking of Table Mountain due to the easy road access, but am open to other suggestions around Baker. I am very little familiar with the area, so it might be a little exploratory, unless some of the participants are familiar with the spot.

Please make sure you test your beacon batteries before coming and bring warm layers: it will be cold.

********** and don't forget your passport or other US travel document *********

 ***** What to bring:

- Beacon, shovel, probe
- Headlamp: I do not intend on coming back at night, but days are short and this is an important emergency item
- Clothes to stay warm in a cold day
- Food and water
- Sunscreen (yes! :) )
- A little first aid kit and navigation tools if you have them
