Participant Information

A good early season backcountry ski trip in the Whistler area. Approach is via Whistler Olympic Park  and the Biathlon range.

Participants must bring backcountry ski gear, avi gear, and headlamps (w spare batteries). It may be rescheduled if the forecast is poor. That decision will be made early Friday evening. Check back here to confirm.

No one leaves until everyone is out.

Please note: This is a moderate paced day trip requiring a reasonable level of fitness and previous backcountry ski experience and is not suitable as a first trip with the club. You must be able to independently navigate in the mountains. I have posted a GPS track of our planned route.

Distance: 16 km
Elevation Gain: 1000 m
Summit: 1798 m
Estimated Time: 8 hrs

 

I'll be posting final trip conditions and info within 24 hours of the trip start. We will be organizing rides at St Davids. If you have special ride requirements please post them in the Planning Forum.

Please ensure the phone number on your BCMC profile matches the number of the cell phone you will be carrying with you.
