Participant Information

Mount Outram is a classic ski trip. Round trip is about 18 km. Total elevation gain is 1800 meters. There is the possibility of skiing the basin SW of the peak. Be prepared for adventure!

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 to climb 1800 meters in a day and still have enough reserves to ski difficult terrain.

Meet up time is 6:30 AM. Meeting spot in Vancouver is the corner of North Grandview Highway and Penticton Street. It is about 3 blocks east of Renfrew Skytrain station. It's on the Central Valley Greenway bike route. It is the southwest corner of the huge Vancouver Technical Secondary School property below the playing field. There is lots of parking alongside the school property. See the maps in the Planning Forum (one from Google Maps, the other an annotated screenshot).
