Trip Planning Questions

Have you a vehicle? Can you get to the meeting spot in West Van? We need to drop a vehicle or two in Lions Bay depending on party size. How many passengers and gear can you take? If I have not skied with you before what recent difficult and physically demanding ski trips have you done?

Participant Information

Looking for a window of good weather for Monday to do the ski traverse from Cypress Bowl to Lions Bay. If the weather and avalanche forecasts for Monday are not favorable, we will do something else nearby as an alternative. I will confirm the destination and meeting time on Sunday evening.

You need headlamp, spare batteries, skis, shovel, probe and beacon. In terms of skiing ability, you need to be competent skiing steep trees, big alpine slopes and narrow trails. You also need to be physically fit as it is a long way to Lions Bay with a fair bit of up and down.

The group size of 8 depends on the number of vehicles we get. For example, two vehicles are required for four people. For eight people, four vehicles are required. Participants are expected to share in transportation costs including fuel and wear and tear on vehicles.
