Coquihalla skiing up to Zoa peak, 600m elevation gain. 9 km round trip - depends on how much we want to ski.  We will ascend from a turnoff 2km east of the Zopkios rest area parking lot. Here's the plain text link: https://goo.gl/maps/1xhXctoph2t : 

Trip will be cancelled if avalanche conditions are high or extreme, trip may be cancelled if visibility is poor or destination may be switched. We will have forum discussion to post our research results.

For those coming from Vancouver: the goal is to carpool directly from the city. The forum for carpool will be created. After Chevron we will meetup at the Tim Horton's in Hope for preplanning meeting. (plain text link https://goo.gl/maps/i67RqCuZDmy)
