Participant Information

Building the walls of an igloo



We will apply what we learn at the pre-trip session in a real situation in the backcountry. Over this weekend, we'll go to Paul Ridge (between Red Heather and Elfin Lakes huts in Garibaldi Park) on snowshoes or touring gear, construct some snow shelters, and then camp in them overnight to test them out. 

Bring your snowshoe/ski/splitboard set up, your normal winter travel gear, your avalanche gear (shovel, probe, beacon), some extra warm winter clothes including extra gloves/mitts, and warm night gear to sleep in. If you have a bivy sack and/or a snow saw, then please bring those. 

Course fee $30

AFTER you've paid the course fee online, then you may add your name to the session.  Either a course organizer or a website administrator will "Confirm" your attendance to both the pre-trip session and the outdoor practical course.  If you've paid for the course but not been "Confirmed" within a few days (definitely *before* the pre-trip session), then please email the course organizer to let them know, thank you.
