Participant Information

Basic outline:
Classic ski tour in the S2S corridor. Significant distance and vert; expect +20k skiing and 1400m climbing. The ski out down the barrier may or may not be in. As of today (2018-3-19), it's a no-go, but this coming refresh may fix things.

Mandatory equip:
Skis or split / boots / poles / skins / all that good stuff
Beacon / probe / shovel
Headlamp / 1st aid / tools & spare parts for your setup
Lunch / drink / appropriate clothing / spare layers and gloves
Sunnies / goggles

Strong recommend:
Ski crampons

Nice if you have them (I carry all of these):
Phone in IP67 case (If you use a mapping app, bring a phone battery pack)
Topo (Baldwin's or NRCAN) / CAA Notebook

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+2. A trip >3 pax will require a second driver. Returning to West Van at whatever time we end up back there after having recovery burritos. 19:00 ish. Expect a $15-20 share of fuel as per BCMC guidelines.
