Participant Information

See John Baldwin "Exploring the coast Mountains on Skis" p 244-246. Access from the Lillooet river road km 17. Approach on skis will take ~8 hours to 1230m cabin location with 2200 feet of elevation. It's ~9km on logging road and 5km at the bottom of the valley exposed to large avalanches. There are two creek crossings involved. See approach route (and download it to your GPS if you have one) https://bcmc.ca/m/pedometer/view/North-Creek-cabin-ski-approach


On one day it would be great to ski Sessel Mountain 2710M. GPS proposed track file is uploaded in event files.

On the final day (Jan 1st)  we will ski out back to the Lillooet river road ~5hours.
