BCMC Social Event (Doors/Beer@7pm)

Annual General Meeting & Garibaldi Park Speed Traverse

- Mt. Currie to Red Heather on skis in 30h 18m
by Christian Veenstra 

Join Christian Veenstra as he talks about his dozen-year journey from not even knowing you are supposed to turn when going downhill, to ski traversing Garibaldi Park from North to South, solo, in a single 104 km, 8700 m, 30.3 h 'day'. Since he didn't stop to take photos while linking the Wedge-Currie, Spearhead, McBride and Neve ski traverses instead he'll talk about motivation, training, equipment, route selection and hazard management. Don't worry - there will still be some visuals from training and reconnaissance trips, and geeking-out on GPS track data.

The Social Presentation will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, November 14th. The entrance door will open shortly before 7pm and the BCMC Social Presentation is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 135 people in the hall. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.
