Coquihalla skiing up to Zoa peak, 600m elevation gain. 9 km round trip - depends on how much we want to ski.  We will ascend from a turnoff 2km east of the Zopkios rest area parking lot. Here's the plain text link: https://goo.gl/maps/1xhXctoph2t :

Trip will be cancelled if avalanche conditions are high or extreme, trip may be cancelled if visibility is poor or destination may be switched.

For those coming from Vancouver: the goal is to carpool directly from the city. If we succeed, then we will change our meetup location to the Tim Horton's in Hope. (plain text link https://goo.gl/maps/i67RqCuZDmy)
