Participant Information

Basic outline:
We're going to photobomb the selfies of the hordes of people (ugh) up at Garabaldi Lake. Strap skis or splitboard to your backpack and go for a fast hike/trail run, make a few greasy turns in the sun, fast hike/run down. The intended slope can be quite sun cupped so be aware that the riding will likely be challenging and of poor quality.

If the weather looks bad, this event will be pushed back 1 week. I will make the decision to go or push back by one week at 20:00 7-days before.

Mandatory equip:
No gear list. You know what you need for summer shredding.

Meetup and logistics:
06:30 meeting at the rear parking lot of St. David's Church, West Van. 06:35 departure. I can drive me+3. Returning to West Van late because we're making a mandatory stop for burritos on the way home. As per BCMC guidelines, expect a $15-20 share of fuel.
