Participant Information

Beginner friendly trip up to the Coquihalla Recreation area. Plan is to head out Saturday morning from the Chevron (Boundary and Dominion St.) and return sometime in the evening. The trail/road starts at the Zopkios pull-out and heads to the saddle between Zupjok and Iago. We will make the skiing on the north side of Iago our primary target, but can head up Zupjok if everyone is keen and the conditions are right. 

AST-1 and avalanche gear required (i.e. Beacon, probe, shovel).

Trip: ~10 km round-trip, 600m elevation gain

This is a new area to me, so some route finding may be required :)
