Participant Information

** Update:  Four participants are confirmed.  There is now room for 2 more.

Ski in on Jan 10.  Stay two nights.  Ski out on Jan 12.

This is to gauge interest before I make hut reservations.  Cost is $20 per night for the two nights.  Full refund if we cancel if avi is HIGH on departure date.  Availability is limited to 4 participants.  You should have some experience as a backcountry skier or splitboarder.  Ski out may be difficult for a splitboarder.  Weather forecast is iffy, but I'm hoping they're wrong this far out.

Minimum requirements:  beacon, probe, shovel and have recently practised using them, AST 1, and the 10 essentials

A couple links to the hut website for your information:

Here is the weather link I used:

https://spotwx.com/products/grib_index.php?model=gem_glb_25km&lat=50.45116&lon=-122.51172&tz=America/Vancouver

I will wait until there are at least 4 participants on the waiting list (including me).  The first 4 participants on the waiting list will be confirmed, and then I will pay for the hut reservation if the hut is still available for this trip.  Confirmed participants are required to send me a $40 e-transfer within one day of being confirmed.  Non-payment will put you back on the wait list and the next person will be confirmed.

There is no guarantee that the hut will be available until the reservation is made.
