Participant Information

We will ski up Mount Kelly. See page 207 of Baldwin.

Map. It is only 3.6km and 559m elevation gain. We will likely have time to ski multiple laps and/or tour along the ridge toward Nordheim Peak.

The meeting place is at the trailhead because I will be camping in Manning Park Saturday night. I encourage others to use the planning forum to coordinate carpooling from Vancouver.

I plan to camp in Manning Park Saturday night after skiing Mt Frosty. Please join that trip (although it is not as beginner friendly) and camp with me if you want. Feel free to camp even if you don't want to ski Mt Frosty. There is a $13 fee for winter camping per group. On Saturday evening, I also plan to use the pool, hot tub, and sauna in the Manning Park lodge for $5. If people prefer sharing a room over camping, I'd be willing to stay at a cabin in Sunshine Valley or a hotel in Hope or somewhere else not too far.
